He continued: ‘Alvaro Toscano, with Andalucian roots, reminds us of the greatness of Andrés Segovia and the passion for the guitar. A passion that is shown year after year in the best Classical Guitar Concert in the World. We will continue to work to make even bigger a contest that places us as the epicentre of guitar in the world’.
