The Torres model: stories and variations in the relationship with composition
Lecturers: Gabriele Lodi, Luigi Locatto
This first meeting addresses the organology of the instrument through the presentation of one of the models that have most influenced the history of the guitar, the one designed by Antonio de Torres. In the second half of the nineteenth century, he built instruments that have become a reference for the modern evolution of the guitar. The investigation will also focus on how this model has influenced the repertoire and how this relationship has evolved throughout the 20th and 21st Centuries.
