About this event

Josep Ferrer i Esteve (1835-1916) was born in Torroella de Montgrí and was a successful guitarist, a noted composer, an excellent teacher, a historian of his instrument and a tireless leader in guitar circles in Barcelona and Paris during the last quarter of the 19th century. His guitar duets are preserved in an autograph manuscript at the Royal Academy of Music in London, and have been rediscovered by the German guitarist Jens Franke, who joins Jørgen Skogmo at the Torroella Festival to give the music’s first performance in modern times.
