Coming Soon – Bernd Martin


Luthier Bernd Martin is celebrating 40 years of luthiery by building a limited run of very special instruments, and we will be receiving one of these guitars in the near future. Check out what Martin has to say about this important milestone and take a glimpse into what these special guitars look like.

Marcelo Kayath – New CD


Marcelo Kayath was a rising star in the classical guitar world in the 1980’s. He retired from the guitar in the early 1990’s and pursued a completely different career as a banker. Now, he is back with his first recording in 25 years and proves that he is still a force to be reckoned with.

Rupert Boyd – Hauser and Santos


We have more from Rupert Boyd, this time playing Dowland’s Fantasie on the 1957 Hauser II (ex. Bream) from the Cleveland Collection, and Fornerod’s Prelude on a 1934 Santos Hernandez that is a perfect example of his mid-century works.

Marcin Dylla – 1947 Robert Bouchet


Watch Marcin Dylla play the Valse Romantique from Tansman’s Hommage a Chopin on a stunning 1947 Robert Bouchet – the second guitar Bouchet ever built and the first he ever sold. Dylla’s performance is masterful and shows off the legendary elegance that Bouchet’s guitars are known for.

GSI at the MFA


David and JohnPaul gave a lecture recently at the Museum of Fine Art in St. Petersburg, Florida, and they discussed the development of the classical guitar and its unsung hero: the luthier. The exhibit The Art of the Classical Guitar ran from January to May and featured several historical instruments by Torres, Hauser I & II, Bouchet, Simplicio and several others.

Kupinsky Duo – Piazzolla ‘Zita’


Here’s the Kupinski duo – Ewa Jablczynska and Dariusz Kupinski – playing their arrangement of Astor Piazzolla’s Zita. Dariusz plays a 2016 Felipe Conde Jr. and Ewa plays a 1990 Brian Cohen.
