One of the most important releases of historical recordings of the classical guitar ever! Francisco Tarrega was the father of the modern guitar, his influence immeasurable. Besides the early cylinder extract of the Master playing his own music, this CD includes recordings made by all of his distinguished disciples - Llobet, Fortea, Pujol, Robledo, Calatayud. Most tracks have never been reissued since their original release in the 1920s and 30s.

In addition, it offers equally rare performances by some of their students - Segovia, Rodes and Sainz de la Maza. Finally, the CD highlights what may be the first solo guitar recording ever made, as early as 1897 - a wax recording by Simon Ramirez of the famous Romance d'Amour.
