Watch Celil Refik Kaya play Enrique Granados’ Valses Poeticos on an amazing new Kenneth Brögger ‘1890 Torres’ model. This guitar is a near-exact reproduction of an 1890 Second Epoch Torres that was owned for many years by Brögger, a circumstance that gave him all the time he needed to study the instrument meticulously. We believe that this is one of, if not the, most accurate Torres reproductions ever built. And we should know – GSI sold the original 1890 Torres back in 2010.

    I saw Celil at the 2012 GFA in Charleston, SC. I really enjoyed his playing then. Astonishing and dedicated. And a really all-around nice guy. Thanks again for the post!

    •Extraordinarily Elegant and Refined Left Hand.
    •Probably the most difficult music in the entire Répetoire.
    •Brilliant Control, Expression & Concentration.
    •Really wonderful Musician.
    •I wonder how it might sound on a nice Rubio, Hauser or Ramirez?
    •Thank~you G.S.I.!

    A complete voice with a background in a masterful instrument. With shut-eye you can not decide which string is played – or change of strings.
    Fabulously smooth playing of and on an instrument that allows this.
