Video Pick of the Week: Andrés Segovia Plays Gavottes 1 & 2 from Bach’s Sixth Cello Suite
Happy 124th birthday (February 21) to the Maestro—Andrés Segovia, unquestionably the most influential guitarist of the modern era. We are fortunate that so much of Segovia’s long career—he played into his 90s—was documented on recordings (beginning in the 1920s), television, and video. Here, in his later years, but still playing with great feeling, he performs the two Gavottes from J.S. Bach’s Cello Suite No. 6 in D Major, BWV 1012.
