A. T. Huerta was active as a concert guitarist from the 1820's up to his death in 1874. He traveled widely and spent time in America, England, Spain and Continental Europe. He was highly regarded in his time as a performer, but has been remembered in modern times mainly through unusual anecdotes. This book presents a comprehensive overview of this fascinating guitarist's life. Half of the book is devoted to an in-depth chronology, full reference excerpts and all known portraits, with the other half comprising the music.
