Biography

With a playing style heavily informed by his Spanish ancestry, French guitarist Thibaut García (May 26, 1994) quickly jumped into the spotlight as one of the most celebrated artists in the contemporary classical music scene. A Toulouse native, the precocious Garcia picked up the guitar at the age of seven, racking up several prizes before obtaining his guitar diploma in the class of Paul Ferret. Mentored by Olivier Chassain and Judicaël Perroy, he graduated with honors from the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris. At the age of sixteen, García received the first prize at the Ana Amalia competition in Weimar, Germany. From that point on, the guitarist became a staple in international competitions, winning the International Competition of Seville in 2013 and the Petrer Guitar Competition in 2014. That same year, the recital album Demain Dès l'Aube saw the light through the independent Contrastes label. A victory at the Guitar Foundation of America Competition in 2015 prompted a North American tour the following year as he received invitations to perform at festivals all over the world. His concerto debut arrived in 2016, accompanied by the Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse, as well as Leyendas, his sophomore effort. In 2017, he was named BBC New Generation Artist, which led to his debut at London’s Wigmore Hall. A third album entitled Bach Inspirations followed in 2018, earning him an award in the category of Instrumental Revelation at the 2019 Victoires de la Musique Classique. A joint effort with the Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse and British conductor Ben Glassberg, Aranjuez (2020) paid homage to Joaquín Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez and included some pieces by Polish composer Alexandre Tansman.
