Featuring the early recordings of the legendary Cuban-American guitarist, Jose Rey de la Torre. This release comprises Rey's first three long-playing recordings (1945-1950) in their entirety, along with Andres Segovia's complete rare 1955 Decca issue "Masters of the Guitar". All of the performances are devoted to the works of Fernando Sor and Francisco Tarrega, the two seminal figures in the development of the modern classical guitar. These recordings allow listeners a clear contrast between the two dominant traditions of classical guitar performance in the twentieth century - one line descending directly from Tarrega, the other from Segovia. Also included is a DVD of extremely rare television appearances made in 1957 and 1962 by Rey de la Torre.
