Ever since the days of Andrés Segovia, albums related to Bach's music have come along often enough. This entry by the young French guitarist Thibaut Garcia has much to recommend it, and indeed Segovia seems to have exerted a strong influence on Garcia's tone, self-possessed but sensuous. It doesn't get any better than the opening La catedral of Paraguayan composer Agustín Barrios, whose music is thankfully becoming more widely exposed: Garcia is arresting here. He's also very strong in his duets with soprano Elsa Dreisig, the Ave Maria of Gounod and the Aria from Villa-Lobos' Bachianas Brasileiras No. 5 (sample the Gounod, where Dreisig veritably seems suspended above Garcia's guitar clouds). Grouped with these may be the lovely arrangement of the Bach Chaconne from the Partita for solo violin in D minor, an arrangement, like that of the Gounod, by Garcia himself. A good deal of space is given over to Polish-French composer Alexandre Tansman, who wrote music along various interesting neoclassic lines. The Inventions (Hommage à Bach) and Pièce en forme de Passacaille suggested themselves probably because they were written (but never performed) by Segovia; they are less neoclassic pieces than almost Bach knockoffs, and Garcia can do less with them than with the other pieces here. Stronger is the Suite Brève of Dusan Bogdanovic, innovatively expanding the Bach model in both harmonic and rhythmic directions; the return to familiar pieces by Bach at the conclusion after these has a strong impact. Erato's engineers, working in the Salle des concerts de Arras, achieve superb results, and the little-heralded Orchestre Nationale de Montpellier Occitane enters into the spirit of the thing. Photogenic, talented, and original, Garcia is plainly a young guitarist to watch.
