We at GSI are nearing completion of a project archiving audio snapshots of some of the historic, rare guitars that have passed through our doors. We decided that this would best be accomplished by working with a brilliant guitarist, who would perform musical pieces that were individually selected for pairing to a respective instrument, in a manner that that would best exploit and demonstrate the unique tonal qualities of each guitar.
The result was a collaboration between GSI and guitarist Marc Teicholz that led to our forthcoming CD entitled Valseana, which includes 18 waltzes played on 18 master instruments, including 2 Torres, 2 Hauser I, Hauser II, Garcia, Santos, Esteso, Fleta, 2 Rodriguez, Barbero, Hernandez y Aguado, Bouchet, Friederich, Rubio, Blochinger, and Romero Jr.
These few sample MP3s won’t do justice to the quality of the audio recorded on the CD – especially on your computer speakers – but we wanted to offer a “sneak peek” as we’re extremely proud of the result. We’re currenty in the final stages of proofing, so we expect Valseana to be available for purchase in the coming week(s).
