The playing of Raphaël Feuillâtre, *1996in Djibouti on the northeast coast of Africa, is lively, deeply felt and full of color, even when he plays music from long ago. The repertoire of the French classical guitarist, winner of numerous international prizes, includes works by Johann Sebastian Bach and Jean-Philippe Rameau as well as contemporary composers such as Roland Dyens and Sérgio Assad. The 27-year-old’s extraordinary technical mastery and artistic vision make works from all eras sound as if they were written yesterday. Hailed by Guitar Salon International as “one of the most exciting concert guitarists of his generation,” he makes his instrument sing with a rare blend of clarity and grace.
