Maestro Antonio Torres has his 200th anniversary this year.
Are you going to celebrate it somehow? Maybe by building a Torres copy, arranging or participating a ¨Torres¨ event or maybe having a nice spanish meal on 13.6.(his birthday)?
A Torres festival was arranged in Stockholm earlier this year, no reports heard yet though.
Here is the link to wonderful Orfeo magazine Torres jubileum edition Valére put in couple of weeks ago.
But what do you intend to do???
On my behalf I will make a Ommage to Torres lecture/concert in november in my home town.
Lecture about building a ¨Torres inspired¨ saturday and a concert on sunday with two very different Torres inspired guitars(made by me) with da Milano, Bach, Tansman, Berkeley and Domeniconi on program.
I will intentionally avoid music from his time to show that the model he gave us is still solid, vivid and totally usable to music from renaisencce to present.
