Feeling a bit camera shy

“This exceptionally talented guitarist is one of the most gifted of his generation. Thibault Cauvin, reinterpreting works, breathing new life into them, constantly reevaluating his contributions, has a sharp sense of originality and a natural expressivity. He is an universal guitarist, certainly one of the most eclectic and unconfined yet, possessing an undeniable richness of imagination. He makes the most of the quality and beauty of the instrument, with, first and foremost, a passion that, stirred up by the bursting energy of his youth, irresistibly fascinates.Although being almost unconscious of it, Thibault Cauvin is deeply impregnated by music. He had always been brought up with it from the cradle. All sorts of music, whitout any discrimation ! Without saying so, this is how he would like to be perceived when he plays, and it is this which probably explains his internationally increasing audience, concert after concert”.
