Segovia Sunday #2: Andrés Segovia Plays Bach, Sor, and Torroba in Classic Old Video

To commemorate the 30th anniversary of Andrés Segovia’s passing in 1987, we’re posting videos of the Maestro in action or stories from the archives of Classical Guitar magazine every Sunday until the end of the year. This is one of the older existing videos we’ve seen; not sure of the date or original source (commenters on the video estimate anywhere from 1948 to the mid-’50s. Anyone know positively?) The sound is crackly, almost like on old 78, but once your ears adjust, you’ll hear a magnificent performance of a Bach lute suite prelude, Fernando Sor’s Variations on a Theme by Mozart, and Torroba’s wonderful Sonatina—Blair Jackson
