Yeah, that's what is great about those kind of links, the side show links that come with it. I googled for Andre Segovia and found a BUNCH of video's of him and other masters of the guitar. I really love the playing of Julian Bream for instance, he has a bunch.
Did you find his official site? Jordi Savall, that is?
Can you identify the piece that plays in the background? I know I have heard it a dozen times but it is in the idiom of the time and sounds so interestingly different, I can't place the composer. Corelli?
BTW, I think it best listened to with earphones!
The second piece, he speaks, in Spanish of course, about Pancho and Sanchez from Don Quixote, then a really lovely piece with vocals by I assume, his wife and daughter.
Well, I spoke too soon, the music presented on his site cycles through from piece to piece, don't know if it it cycles back to the original I heard at first, you get different pieces when you listen. Also, the name of the piece scrolls on a black toolbar at the bottom. I wanted to hear the first piece but so far it hasn't cycled through yet.
Just found there a great little piece, vocal and lute?, El Mariner Bella Terra.
I think it is not lute but some kind of harp. Also percussion.
