Description

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". "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." - The New Records.
