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.
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 forRead 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.

The Guitar is BackApril 4, 2017By S. Scordilis (Whately, MA)See All My Reviews"There isn't much music specifically written for guitar so there have been transcriptions galore - there haven't been many virtuosi on guitar in recent years - Thibaut Garcia is a virtuoso who play it all. His technique is remarkable, but even more importantly he has at hi disposal all the possibilities of the guitar and uses them to interpret the music on this disc lovingly - with pathos and with fire when needed. This is a must disc for any music lover, classical or not!"Report Abuse
