Here’s Marc Teicholz playing the final guitar from our ‘Valseana Live’ event – an exquisite 1867 Torres. The guitar is 145 years old and as far as most of us are concerned there aren’t many guitars, new or old, that can touch this. It’s kind of amazing that such a small guitar can sound so big after all these years. And while it’s hard to say how much of the experience has to do with knowing that you’re hearing a piece of history, almost everyone who hears this guitar (or other similarly preserved Torres guitars played by a great player) agrees that there’s something about them – the term ‘magical’ is used a lot. At any rate – you don’t get to hear these every day, so I hope you all enjoy Marc’s performance of some of Sérgio Assad’s Brevidades and his Valseana movement from Aquarelle.
