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.strungup wrote: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?
