Carles Trepat Concert on an 1892 Torres Guitar

Carles Trepat is a Spanish Catalan classical guitarist. He was born in Lérida, Spain, in 1960. He usually plays with historical guitars. This concert was played on his 1892 Antonio Torres guitar (SE 153), using gut and silk strings. (In fact, Torres didn’t finish building this guitar. According to Romanillos, this guitar was completed by Miguel Moya when Torres fell ill.)
