Maestro John Mills’ superb new CD

Posted on: July 25th, 2013 by Julie No Comments

Hot on the heelJ_Mills_Segovia_ramirezs of his fascinating documentary film available on DVD, Evolución, which explores guitar technique and expression including a stylistic analysis of performance from the mid 19th Century onwards, John Mills has just released a beautifully-produced, really wonderful quality double CD recording, ‘Segovia – The Ramirez Years’, which celebrates Segovia’s long-term relationship with this world-famous guitar dynasty:

“Legendary British classical guitarist John Mills presents a double CD recording in which he performs a selection of celebrated works written for and transcribed by Andres Segovia. To promote an authenticity of tone, this album has been recorded on a 2012 664mm Cedar top – Ramirez 1A ‘Tradicional’ concert guitar. Presented with an extended booklet containing interviews with Alexandre Tansman’s daughter Mireille and Cecilia Rodrigo, this album captures the timeless magic and beauty of the Segovian – repertoire and Ramirez guitars.”

As part of the drive to improve our website and make the listings easier to navigate, we have now added a new category for second-hand guitars:

We always have a lot more instruments in stock than listed on the site though, and second-hand ones often come and go without our having time to add them. Do give us a ring or call in if you are looking for any guitar in particular – we may have something to suit!
