Info for Bach

The French guitarist presents music by Bach in his own arrangements. Among others, the famous Toccata and Fugue in D minor BWV 565, Partita No. 2 in D minor BWV 1004 and several of his own pieces inspired by Bach's preludes.

Thibault Cauvin, "The superstar of the guitar" (Quotidien), unveils his unique reinterpretations of BACH's timeless works on February 3. "Recording the music of Bach... Perhaps the greatest and most beautiful adventure there is for a performer, to immerse oneself in his eternal and timeless notes is shattering in the extreme. I remember forgetting the time every morning during the months of preparation for this album, as I delved bewilderedly into these world-map-like scores. Arguably the final journey is the legendary Chaconne, which for centuries has driven the people who play it and the dreamers who listen to it mad. Like an adventurer setting out to discover new territories, when you strike the first chord of this ocean, you feel like you're leaving the dock and embarking on a wondrous epic. This music of Bach can be erudite, cerebral and impressive, but it is also natural and universal. It is the wisdom of childhood that I wanted to rediscover when I recorded this album in that area of the Dordogne where I vacationed as a young boy; to rediscover that joy, that light, that gentle serenity. There, in a wonderful little church with a magical sound, I recorded Bach's notes day and night, and I pass them on to you here, just as one passes on a map that leads to a treasure." Thibault Cauvin - Widely celebrated for his passion and creativity, he has consistently won awards and by the age of 20 had won a total of 36 prizes (including 13 first prizes) - more than any other guitarist. For over 15 years, he has toured extensively, playing the world's most prestigious halls. 120 countries, 1000 solo concerts with this unique guitar, stirring up Carnegie Hall in New York, Tchaikovsky Hall in Moscow, Shanghai Concert Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall in London, and so on. His universal playing and graceful personality have charmed and brought together every audience. Their new album Bach is an unavoidable classical event!
