Thibault Cauvin does not flaunt all his accolades. And for good reason: thirty-six medals - including thirteen first prizes won between the ages of eighteen and twenty! - would make this guitar hotshot, born in 1984, look like a war veteran. Better than a fingertip, three jewels intended for strings other than his own serve as a starting point for this voyage. "Scarlatti has been with me for many years and I have always felt close to his sonatas, which are brilliant, dynamic and full of mischief," he wrote in the introduction to the album he devoted to them in 2013 (Sony). Among other evocative detours, the postcards of Albéniz and the Argentinean rhythms of Piazzolla will rub shoulders with the swing of Ellington and the charm of Jobim.
