Davide Anzaghi: Segoviana/ Andrea Cappelli: Corpo e anima/ Fabio Luppi: Rondò delle quarte/ Gian Paolo Luppi: Bagatelle per Andrés Segovia/ Marco Reghezza: Fughetta sulle corde vuote/ Alessandro Spazzoli: Preludio Corale/ Roberto Tagliamacco: Homenaje a Segovia/ Paolo Ugoletti: Omaggio a Segovia

One outstanding feature of Andrés Segovia’s artistic activity was the systematic way in which he commissioned new works from leading composers who were not guitarists. This highly original initiative proved to have historic consequences for the emancipation of the guitar from the rather provincial milieu of aficionados in which it was confined, enabling it to emerge as a major protagonist in its own right on the international music scene.
To mark the 25th anniversary of his passing (1987-2012) I asked some composers to write a piece paying tribute to Andrés Segovia. Most responded with enthusiasm and I was able to perform their “tributes to Segovia” in the concerts honouring the memory of the Maestro I held in 2012 – in venues including the Ravenna Festival, the Ateneo in Madrid, the Royal Academy of Music, London, and the Meeting in Rimini, as well as many others. In my turn I dedicate this volume, containing a selection of these pieces, to the memory of the Maestro.
The volume is undoubtedly enhanced by the inclusion of two further tributes to Segovia, both produced to accompany concerts I gave in 2012: a poem by Davide Rondoni and a portrait of Segovia by Roberto Casadio.
