See and hear Andrew York’s new composition on a phenomenal and original Antonio de Torres guitar from 1864. Andy went back to his 1994 album “Denouement” and revisited one of his pieces called “Numen” and decided to expand on it by writing a 4 movement work, which he’s aptly titled “Numen Suite”. The names of the four movements are: I. Numen, II. Lumen, III. Menhir and IV. Numina. Although Andy has been performing this piece recently in his concerts, this is the recorded premiere.

With a wave of Minimalism being so ‘in’ at the moment, we thought twice about this title and image. And, on that second thought we thought, “In this case COLLECTOR is a good thing!” Just look at that great library of music.

It all belongs to Jack Silver, who has become a friend as of late as he’s shared with us his story on how he became a collector of rare recordings; the kinds that record labels dream of having and audiophiles want to discover first. In recent years, Jack released some of his obscure, unknown recordings through DOREMI Records (now distributed by NAXOS), in a series called “Andres Segovia and his Contemporaries”. There are currently 12 volumes in this series.

As part of this multi-part GSI Story Series, we give you Pt. 1 of Jack Silver’s story (in his own words) on how he got started collecting rare recordings.
