Andres Segovia (1893-1987), a Spanish musician and the most important classical guitarist of the 20th century, re-established the guitar as a serious instrument for concert music. He made his first concert in Granada at the age of 14 and began an international career in Paris in 1924.
Segovia made many transcriptions for guitar, especially from lute and harpsichord music. Several important contemporary composers created works for him, such as the Brazilian H. Villa lobos - 12 Etudes for guitar and Five Preludes.
