Classical Corner IV

This is the 5th and last of the “Preludios Americanos” by the Uruguayan guitarist and composer Abel Carlevaro (1916–2001). I had the great fortune to twice attend his master classes and hear his flawless playing in concert.

I also had the opportunity to see that he was a fine and gentle person of good humor. As a guitarist, he is one of my primary influences.

He was a virtuoso performer, classical guitar composer and teacher. He established a new approach to guitar technique, based on anatomical principles.

He had a successful career as a concert artist and gained the admiration of musicians such as Heitor Villa-Lobos and Andrés Segovia. As a composer, he was also an important contributor to modern guitar music.
