Here’s Marc Teicholz playing a 1936 Fleta that was actually a copy of a Torres that Fleta had in his shop for repair. Fleta made mostly violins until 1955, but he was smart enough in 1936 to take advantage of having the Torres in the shop. Marc and David thought it would be appropriate to play some Catalán music on a Catalán guitar, so Marc played Llobet’s arrangements of two Catalonian folk songs and Capricho Arabe by Tarrega. The video was shot by our good friend Jurgen Reisch.

    Wow that was a really wonderful video Given the quality of the sound and recording would GSI consider doing a DVD or blue ray of the event ? Or possibly a live CD? A blue ray with DVD Audio sound would be really amazing. Thanks for posting this.

    I am very impressed on how the electronics of the microphone have improved nowdays, so much that even Segovia would want to use them now. This is a great sounding guitar played by a very emotional player. He captures the sentiment of the piece and transmit it through the guitar playing. Great video, keep them coming.

    Marc is a great interpreter of classical guitar music. That’s fantastic sound coming from a brilliant old guitar. Now there’s a real quality instrument that does not die from old age. Would this happen to be spruce top guitar?
