What Segovia found was that the sound of the guitar had trouble filling an entire concert hall. He experimented with new materials, woods, finishes and building techniques to design the modern classical guitar with a fuller, richer sound. By the 's and 50's, Segovia had established the guitar as a respectable classical instrument. His aim was to do even more.
He wanted to pass on the legacy to future generations. Segovia established schools of guitar throughout several universities and music schools around the world. He took on students of his own. Andres Segovia continued to perform well into his nineties.

Dances abound, and the release also shows how Mertz devoted much of his career to educational studies, many of which are at least as interesting as his non-pedagogical works. With virtuosity never in short supply throughout the compilation, Italian guitarist Graziano Salvoni — who enjoys a busy schedule in his home country both as a soloist and with various chamber orchestras — delivers astute performances of these engaging works.
He plays a Johann Anton Stauffer model — named after and made by one of the most important luthiers in central Europe, a contemporary of Mertz and whose instruments it is highly likely the composer-virtuoso himself regularly performed on.
