Segovia - The Song of the Guitar

Post by mousemat » Sun Jul 10, 2005 4:16 pm

Does anyone know if the film of Segovia - The Song of the Guitar, was ever released on DVD? I saw it on TV years ago (yes I know I should have been practising) and it was excellent.

Sorry Patrizio, but it doesn't say. Just a case of, "Watch that space".

In the meantime, check out Guitarra, A musical Journey through Spain (With Julian Bream) There's some very nice Vihuella work on it as well.

I agree, "Guitarra! A musical journey..." is a great video. There's also another one with John Williams (not the Star Wars one!), I'm not sure of the title but it's great. Lots of performances, interviews, intimacy, his practicing, etc. It's not an educational video though, it's more like "know the man".

The John Williams one is The Seville Concert... it is great, it is what inspired me to really start playing classical vs electric. On this video he plays Seville by Albeniz, Bachs Lute Prelude in E Major, Sakura Variations, Ushers Waltz by Koshkin, Asturius, Adagia fro Conierto de Aranjuez, among others. It is a famtastic video, but extremely hard to get hold of (in the US at least). I managed to get it from somone who made a DVD from the VHS. If anyone can get hold of it and hasnt seen it yet, I would highly recommend it. After the concert, it has a documentary on his life which is what i think the previous poster was refering to.
I met JW once and told him he needs to make a DVD, but all he said was he was thinking of making one focused on the history of the classical guitar. That would be awesome too!

I agree whole heartedly with cconsaul about the vihuella playing (rolls royce banjo or not). You have to have seen the film.

I've not seen the Willaims film that Jamie mentioned but *** Boycotted Link *** is worth checking out :wink:

I have the guitarra, with Julian Bream. I have just about worn it out. It is very long, and I notice something new each time I watch it.

hmm..frustrating for me..when this kind of material will finally get to romania outside bucharest the capital in limited places-that is when a spread interest in this domain to justify the costs of import or the creation a specialised firm to put this on the market appears- i'll tell u what i think about these videos..till then..i think i'll just stay here and build up tension :) (or until a friend from the us brings them to me) btw, do u have any idea how i could purchase them online?

Ironic as it seems, here in Brazil I watched it on cable TV over and over, I think it was 1999 or something - years ago. It came to a point that I got actually bored over it (the "guitarra!" video), 'cos they must have played it like at least a dozen times that year. And then... never again!!! I wonder why I didn't record that on VCR.
