Johann Sebastian Bach, champion of the art of arrangement (of both his own and others’ music), has largely paved the way for today's transcribers, protecting them from the risk of being labelled as transgressors or iconoclasts. 


Played by the guitarist Thibault Cauvin, this album follows suit, replete with novel arrangements almost entirely written by Thibault’s brother Jordan. Thibault Cauvin is acclaimed worldwide as a true phenomenon, having won more awards than any other guitarist. For him, recording Bach's music is a kind of overwhelming journey of initiation into the realm of beauty. He explains this with passion and lyricism: "Like an adventurer setting out on the discovery of new territories, when you lay down the first chord, stepping into this ocean, you get the sense you are pushing off the quay, beginning a miraculous saga. Of course, Bach’s music can be wise, cerebral, impressive, but it is also always obvious and universal. I wanted to rediscover the wisdom of childhood by recording this album in the Dordogne, where I always went on holiday as a boy; to rediscover that joy, that light, that gentle serenity.”


This long-awaited album begins with the famous, monumental Toccata and Fugue in D minor, which remain for many THE archetypal organ works. Far from the flamboyant orchestration that Leopold Stokowski created for Walt Disney's 1940 film Fantasia, here it is rendered note for note in the intimacy of the guitar alone, which makes every line and every counterpoint explicit. The rest of the album, from the Well-Tempered Clavier, a Suite for solo cello, and the Second Partita for violin (played in its entirety with the legendary Chaconne, completing this great inner journey), is to be listened to as a complete work, leaving Thibault Cauvin to guide you with his subtle and inspired playing through the work of one of the greatest musical minds of all time. © François Hudry/Qobuz
