Within the framework of the 15th International Classical Guitar Festival of Haute-Nendaz, a projection of the documentary film "Andrés Segovia" will be made on Tuesday 30 July 2019 at 7:30 pm at the Chapelle du Bleusy, Haute-Nendaz. Entry free of charge.
Andrés Segovia Torres, 1st Marquis of Salobreña, was a Spanish virtuoso classical guitar player. The first time that Segovia performed in public was at the age of sixteen in Spain. Segovia strummed the strings with a combination of his nails and fingertips, producing a stronger sound than his contemporaries. Thanks to him, the guitar was no longer regarded as a strictly popular instrument, but as being equally appropriate to classical music.
