AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

Happy Birthday, Segovia.


Andres Segovia was born on this day in 1893.

There was a physician, a doctor, in Spain who was an extremely cultivated man, and he used to say "The physician that only medicine knows, he doesn't know medicine.'" If that seems a little mystical, what does that mean? That means this: that the attitude is to have a curiosity and satisfy that curiosity for everything in life, and every other knowledge than music. And then when he is like that, then everything reflects in the way he plays, in the sensitiveness in the concept, everything.
