Description

The House of José Ramírez, Spain's longest established guitar maker, was founded in Madrid in 1882. Over many years it has built and conserved a Museum Collection of instruments constructed by members of the family and other great Spanish luthiers, many of whom were trained in their workshops.



For the first time in this long and distinguished history, new and unique recordings of these highly important guitars, including those that belonged to the legendary Andres Segovia, are presented here played by Brian Whitehouse, concert guitarist, composer and aficionado.

All these wonderful instruments, displaying over two centuries of the luthiers' art, are beautifully illustrated together with detailed descriptions. Photographs and notes relate their place in the history of music and biographical details are given of the luthiers, players and composers contemporary to their construction. Many interesting anecdotes are told and the project captures, in a highly illuminating way, the spirit of these wonderful artistic creations - The History and Romance of the Spanish Guitar.
