Notes and Editorial Reviews

Thibaut Garcia is causing a sensation in the guitar world. Aged only 22 has already won several international competitions in the USA, Spain, Romania, and Germany, including first prize in the highly prestigious Guitar Foundation of America competition. Born in Toulouse, and of Spanish origins, he began his studies at the Paris Conservatoire aged just 16. No stranger to recognition in his home country either, he has appeared on “La boîte à musique” on television channel France 2, and on France Musique.

REVIEW:

Garcia’s smooth, rich and sweet sound and impeccable virtuosity, in a spacey and warm acoustic, may not be a totally individual voice yet. But this is a delight for
Read more everyone, from the curious discovering the core Latin guitar repertoire, to collectors who want the best. This outstandingly played, well-balanced, well-thought selection is definitely up among them.
