A network for historic guitars and vihuelas
Alexander Lagoya. 1929 -1999.
Born of Greek and Italian parents, famous from a very young age, he was a student of the composer
Heitor Villa-Lobos. It was in Paris that he met the great guitarist Ida Presti whom he married.
Together they formed the duo, Prestigious Lagoya, and went on to become the greatest guitar duos of
the twentieth century. His career was interrupted with the premature death of Ida Presti, and after a
silence of five years, he resumed his career as an international soloist, with numerous concerts and
recordings. He was the founder and a professor of guitar at the Conservatory National Supérieur de
Musique de Paris, where he taught between 1969 and 1994 and also at the Schola Cantorum de Paris
where he trained many guitarists. Enthusiastic researcher, he was a friend of the great musicians of his
time, Jean-Pierre Rampal and Django Reinhardt. He had developed a personal playing technique, and
order custom made instruments from the best luthiers of his day.
These are his personal guitars, all in perfect condition and certified, to be offered to musicians during
public auction on Saturday 15 December 2012, Vichy (France).
