Praised for his “smooth, rich and sweet sound and impeccable virtuosity,” guitarist Thibaut Garcia releases his second album on Erato, a recital of works composed and inspired by Johann Sebastian Bach. Garcia says, “Bach has been part of my life as a musician since the very start.” Taking Bach’s mighty Chaconne as his centerpiece, he ranges wide — from Gounod’s much-loved Ave Maria and Villa-Lobos’s Bachianas Brasileiras No. 5 to music by Agustín Barrios Mangoré, Alexandre Tansman, and the contemporary Serbian-American composer Dušan Bogdanović.
