Segovia: The Light of Music and the Guitar

SKF NOTE: Amazing musical word descriptions from Andres Segovia in this short clip.

Describing his guitar as the best in the world, Mr. Segovia then tells how long it took the German guitar maker to craft his guitar and why. Segovia describes the first guitar from the German craftsman as:

Without soul. I mean, without the quality of voices and the volume that I require.

Explaining how guitar differs from piano:

The light of music coming to the guitar breaks in many beautiful orchestra sounds.

On Spanish composer Manuel de Falla and his music:

What he wrote is marvelous, of intensity and of nobility. He was small and thin. He had only the skin and the soul.
