Segovia plays Mozart

Andres Segovia plays Fernando Sor's Variations on a Theme from the opera "Il Flauto Magico" by Mozart.

This is a great demonstration of why Segovia had such an influence and reputation amongst other musicians (not just amongst guitarists).

I have heard personal anecdotes from Australian professional string players that back in 1950's and 60's London they would (everybody would) go out of their way to attend recitals by Segovia. He was regarded as one of the very finest of string players, regardless of instrument.

This video is probably from the 1930's.
