 Laurindo Almeida Guitar


This disc is the result of coupling two Almeida recordings: The Art of Laurindo Almeida and Bach is Beautiful. It contains music by Galilei, de Visée and, of course, J.S. Bach.

Almeida (1917-1995) was one of the world’s great concert guitarists. Born in Brazil, he moved to the United States in 1947. In 1977, he was awarded the Certificate of Appreciation for: "A lifetime of dedicated and distinguished service to the guitar in the United States".

"A lovely program. This all-new recording confirms the reigning supremacy of the popular guitarist."

Billboard

"Wherever you find it, this disc is a spotlight item, for the concert world has no greater artist than this sensitive guitarist, nor is there a more personal communication between artist and listener."
