It’s not often you get to compare a contemporary guitar to the 121-year-old original which inspired it, but that’s one of the fun things about hanging out at GSI. When guitarist Fabricio Mattos stopped by during his 10-hour layover at LAX we happened to have a Kenneth Brögger ‘1890 Torres’ model and the original 1890 Antonio de Torres, so how could we resist having a great player like Fabricio play the same piece on both guitars? Here they are – you be the judges:
Here’s Fabricio playing an excerpt from the Villa-Lobos guitar concerto on the original 1890 Torres.
And here he is playing the same excerpt on Kenneth Brogger’s homage guitar.
