Al escuchar l. a. realizada por el maestro español, parece como si los angeles intención de Bach hubiera sido componerla originalmente para guitarra en vez de para violín. Además de crear un amplio repertorio y de mejorar los angeles calidad sonora de los angeles guitarra, Segovia consiguió pasar su legado de conocimientos a una nueva generación. El compositor español tuvo muchos alumnos a lo largo de su carrera. Entre los más famosos se encuentran Christopher Parkening, John Williams, Elliot Fisk y Oscar Ghiglia. Estos discípulos, entre muchos otros, continúan hoy los angeles tradición de Segovia, a l. a. vez que extienden los angeles presencia, el repertorio y los límites musicales de l. a. guitarra clásica. con el paso de los años: as years glided by perfeccionó/perfeccionar: he improved/to increase, to ideal maderas: woods, timbers diseños: designs aumentar: to extend más adelante: later llegada: arrival cuerdas de nylon: nylon strings tonos más constantes: extra constant tones a l. a. vez: while más lejos: additional llevó/llevar: it took/to take quedó: used to be abrumado/abrumar: overwhelmed/to weigh down maestría: services, ability consiguiendo: acquiring, attaining éxito: good fortune rascacielos: skyscrapers condujo/conducir: it led him/to lead habían llegado/llegar: that they had arrived/to arrive viajaba/viajar: he traveled/to go back and forth se hicieron/hacerse: they became/to turn into a partir de entonces: from then on empezaron/empezar: they started/to begin crear: to create piezas originales: unique items asimismo: additionally, besides adaptó/adaptar: he adapted/to adapt obras maestras: masterpieces dominar: to grasp parece/parecer: it seems/to appear hubiera sido componerla: it can were to compose it amplio/ampliar: expanded/to extend repertorio: repertoire calidad sonora: sound caliber pasar: to visit legado: legacy conocimientos: wisdom alumnos: scholars extienden/extender: they spread/to unfold Eduardo Galeano URUGUAY Es curioso como a veces uno no valora lo que tiene cerca hasta el momento en que se encuentra ya demasiado lejos. A pesar de haber nacido y crecido en Uruguay, mi primer contacto con l. a. obra del escritor uruguayo Eduardo Galeano fue recién cumplidos los 18 años, durante una estadía en Alemania, y gracias a un amigo venezolano que me prestó uno de sus libros. l. a. introducción a Galeano fue nada más y nada menos que con su famosa obra Memorias del fuego. En esta trilogía el autor describe l. a. historia de América a través de pequeñas historias y personajes, muchos reales y otros míticos. En el primer tomo incluye mitos y leyendas indígenas, memorias previas a l. a. llegada de los europeos. El segundo tomo comprende los angeles historia de las Américas durante el período que va desde los angeles llegada de los españoles hasta finales del siglo XIX. Por último, en el tercer tomo, cubre en detalle los acontecimientos del siglo XX. Esta obra le valió el Premio del Libro Americano en 1989, y para mí, signifyó el redescubrimiento de América Latina. Este escritor, periodista y poeta uruguayo saltó a l. a. fama mundial con su obra periodística Las venas abiertas de América Latina.
