If Segovia was the king, and Williams was the Prince, then what was Bream? Falstaff?
+That John William (whom people told me plays like Segovia and is his prodige), actually thinks Segovia is a limited musician.
+That Segovia's rubato, that people often swoon about, is often used by Segovia simply to cover up technical difficulties (and slow down "graciously").
It's obvious that his technique is terrible. His performance of Asturias is in my opinion one of the worst things in the whole musical world, it makes me rage every single time how he is just unable to play it like it's supposed to be played and instead adds tasteless rubato everywhere to hide his inability.
But the worst thing is that everybody seems to love it. "Oh Segovia is so great because he can change the meaning of a phrase completely just by accenting different notes or adding pauses!". Yeah everybody can do this, the only difference is that people who have any taste choose to play it naturaly without any fake rubato.
