Betho Davezac

Postby strungup » Sat Feb 03, 2007 5:46 am

I've just been listening to an old tape I made of a recital by Davezac in about 1972, and I'm still delighted by his playing, especially of the 18th century lutenist, and contemporary of Weiss, Ernst Gottlieb Baron (the Suite in A). I haven't found much on google though - any one know what he's doing now?

Several years ago he was teaching at L'Ecole Nationale de Musique in Meudon France... I don't know if he is still there though.
Maybe you could 'google' the school

I like Gottlieb Baron.
P.K Farstad, a Norwegian guitar player, has released a double-cd called "Galant Guitar" which includes "Fantasia" and a Suite (not the suite in A).

Kind regards

I think he is not teaching any more, but directed a contemporary music guitar ensemble : Harmonic 12. I meet him a few times, great musician and very fine person.

Your mail reminded me that I have an LP of Betho Davezac and prompted me to play it for the first time in over 20 years. I had forgotten what a delightful player he was. The LP in question was on the French Erato label, entitled Musique Elisabethaine and issued in 1973. Davezac is playing a 1971 Masaru Kohno guitar, which sounds excellent, and the composers covered are John Dowland ( 9 pieces taking up the whole of side 1), Francis Cutting, Baruch Bulman, Robert Johnson, Thomas Morley and Daniel Batchelar. The biography on the cover says that Davezac was born in Uruguay in 1938 and attended masterclasses with Segovia in Santiago de Compostela and with Alirio Diaz in Alessandria.

I have just found a photo (beautiful) and very recent (2009) of Betho Davezac.

This photo, rare, holds me with heart, because I was his student during two years in Meudon (France), with my first price in the pocket, almost thirty years ago from now on.... :(

I have tried to join again the contact with him for several months. For the moment, I do not reach that point… But this photo, perharps, catch at the time of a competition for young guitarists in the Paris region (Montigny-le-Bretonneux) the last year, offers a new chance for my search… :)
