ECHOES FESTIVAL | GUITARRISIMO | Antonio Torres 200: Fernando Espí Commemorates the Birth of the Modern Guitar
Espí is one of the great Spanish classical guitarists. Ritmo

Without Antonio de Torres Jurado (1817-1892) we would not have the classical guitar. Considered the greatest luthier of his day, he gave birth to the modern instrument with his innovative improvements to its design, which produced a louder and more beautiful tone, helping to launch the guitar out of the drawing room and into the concert hall as an increasingly 'serious' instrument at a time when it was manifestly failing to compete with louder, more dramatic instruments. So superior was Torres' craft that his design remains, to this day, the bluprint for all classical guitar production. Pre-eminent 19th-century specialist and multi-award-winner, Fernando Espí, presents a programme of Romantic Spanish guitar works by composers with a personal connection to Torres who helped shape his career and approach to guitar-making and who showed off his instruments to greatest effect. Espí will perform on a Joan Pellisa 2016 replica of an original 1863 Torres instrument.
