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.

Contemporary Music for Guitar

Piero Bonaguri graduated “cum laude” at the Parma Conservatory. “Diploma di Merito” at the Accademia Chigiana in Siena, he also studied with Enrico Tagliavini, Alirio Díaz, Oscar Ghiglia and Andrès Segovia, who wrote about him: “He will soon be a famous name among the best guitarists of our time”.
His performing career takes him to more than fifty countries in all five continents, working with prestigious Institutes and Festivals.
He has premiered, recorded and edited many pieces for guitar written for him (almost 400 new compositions have been dedicated to him by well-known composers such as Cappelli, Guarnieri, Ugoletti, Solbiati, Molino, Paccagnini, Benati, Carluccio, Anzaghi, Tagliamacco).
He is general editor of a collection of contemporary guitar works published by Ut Orpheus.
He teaches guitar at the Conservatory “G.B. Martini” in Bologna.



Seicorde (luglio-settembre 2014)
In occasione del venticinquesimo anniversario della morte del maestro Segovia, Piero Bonaguri ha invitato diversi compositori a scrivere un omaggio musicale. Ne è nata questa pubblicazione. ... Il lavoro è impreziosito anche da una bella poesia di Davide Rondoni e da un bel quadro di Roberto Casadio (riprodotto sul frontespizio della pubblicazione) che ha per soggetto Andrés Segovia. Grazie a Piero Bonaguri per questo bel progetto.
