Page move[edit]

I've moved the page to the most common form of the name used in English per Wikipedia:Naming conventions (common names) and Wikipedia:Naming_conventions#Spanish_family_names. --Viriditas | Talk 00:10, 18 May 2005 (UTC)


I took all the info from the Agustin Barrios-Mangoré article and added to this one. I created a redirect afterwards. Bruno18 04:07, 18 August 2006 (UTC)

List of works[edit]

I have added a list of works (pieces and poems) and some other external links. edward, 09:10, 10 December 2006 (UTC)

I have added Vals 4 to the list of his outstanding works since this is invariably included on all albums devoted to his music. ~~ —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:11, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

Listening to different recordings, I found four Barrios works under different titles: London Carape = Danza Paraguaya; Aconquija = Vals Op.8 No.3; Madrigal = Choro de Saudade; Jha Che Valle = Un Sueno en la Floresta Graeff (talk) 18:48, 13 July 2012 (UTC)

Williams quote[edit]

I took out one sentence that qualified Williams' assessment of Barrios and Giuliani/Sor, because it's Williams' opinion; we don't have to subject it to NPOV scrutiny, as if it were an entry by a contributor.

However, just out of interest, can anyone explain what Williams meant when he said "regardless of ear"? It's always puzzled me.

Typo? - era? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:30, 5 October 2009 (UTC)

I have also removed an unsourced claim that Williams, "perpetuated the myth" of Barrios having made the first classical guitar gramophone recordings, which does not seem justified. Martinevans123 (talk) 09:48, 6 November 2016 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Mangore.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Mangore.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 03:30, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Composer project review[edit]

I've reviewed this article as part of the Composers project review of its B-class articles. This is a Start-class article; the biography is too sketchy too support a B rating. My full review is on the comments page; questions and comments should be left here or on my talk page. Magic♪piano 17:16, 28 March 2009 (UTC)

There are more very good images at Are these all now copyright free because of their age? The full colour image, third down, in the section "Inseparable... Barrios and the Guitar. Part 3" is particularly striking. Martinevans123 (talk) 09:53, 6 November 2016 (UTC)
