Hailed as ‘the new face of classical guitar’ after winning every major international guitar competition within the space of just a few months, 23-year-old Thibaut Garcia has had the critics reaching for new superlatives, as well as comparisons with the great guitarists of the past. Described as a young Frenchman with an old Spanish soul, his passionate and charismatic playing has resulted in sold-out tours across North and South America, which he now follows with a performance at the Ryedale Festival. His programme ranges from Bach to Piazolla and draws inspiration from many cultures. ‘I wanted it to be full of energy, sun, emotion and tenderness’, he writes, ‘evoking places in which I have travelled extensively – from Seville and Granada to Buenos Aires, by way of the Basque country and the Asturias. It enables me to bring a personal character to each piece, as if every page were part of my travel diary.’

‘sonorous lyrical passages and contrasting moments of brooding intensity and sensuality. Garcia handles the varying shades with great skill and sensitivity, and is rewarded at the end with a thunderous standing ovation’ – International Guitar Magazine
