Andrés Segovia

Andrés Torres Segovia, 1st Marquess of Salobreña (21 February 1893–2 June 1987) was a Spanish classical guitarist born in Linares, Jaén, Spain.

He is widely regarded as one of the most important figures of the classical guitar in the beginning and mid 20th century.

Segovia's main musical aesthetic preferences were Spanish romantic and Spanish nationalist music of the late 19th and early 20th century - a style that is very different from flamenco.

Many works of this style were written especially for him and formed part of his core repertoire, e.g.

the guitar works of Federico Moreno Torroba (1891-1982).
