  • Description

    Guitarist David Jacques returns with the third volume of 'Histoires de guitares' (Guitar Stories), featuring 16 historical guitars from his private collection, most of them built by the best 19th century luthiers.

    Each guitar is featured in repertoire that suits the instrument's character, and each has a unique story to tell.

    In the early 1800s, the fruitful collaboration between composers and guitar-makers greatly enabled the instrument's evolution, thanks to a variety of models, materials, and techniques. The guitar was considered the most fashionable instrument of the time, a must-have in 19th century music halls and European courts.

    The rare guitars from Jacques' private collection hail among other cities from Strasbourg, Moscou, Paris, Mirecourt, Cadix, and Quebec -- the major cities where the finest guitars were crafted for outstanding musicians. Guitarist and lutenist David Jacques has a Ph.D. in early music performance from the Universite de Montreal. His discography consists of 50-plus recordings on the XXI-21, ATMA Classique, Oz, and Analekta labels, several of which have been nominated for ADISQ, Juno, Opus, and ECHO Klassik prizes.
