Three great masters of the Baroque, three musical essences. Arka?tz Chambonnet is both a soloist as well as a chamber musician. Between 2009 and 2011, he was awarded with 6 prizes including the 1st Prize at the Fernando Sor contest of Rome, the 2nd Prize at the Printemps de la guitare in Belgium and the 2nd Prize, as well as the prize of interpretation, at the Francisco Tárrega contest in Spain, this last one being one of the most prestigious guitar contest in the world.
In 2012, he co-founded the Quatuor Eclisses with Gabriel Bianco, Pierre Lelièvre and Benjamin Valette. This guitar quartet performs frequently in France and abroad and has released two CDs Guitares (lien) and Invitation fran?aise (lien). In 2013, they won the FNAPEC European competition for music ensemble and the following year, they were Banque Populaire Foundation laureates.
The guitarist Arka?tz Chambonnet delivers a personal vision of this repertoire through transcriptions in which he explores the richness of his instrument. “For this CD, I carefully chose works whose polyphonic power could be conveyed by guitar. I have done most of the transcriptions. I received advice from Gérard Abiton, an eminent guitarist and specialist in this field, who instilled this passion in me through his teaching. I also wanted to pay him a tribute by playing some of his transcriptions. Whether these are original works for violin, viola da gamba with continuo or harpsichord, I always had in mind to adapt them while highlighting the polyphonic qualities of guitar. I simplified some parts and amplified others, always being very concerned not to distort the original work”. (Arka?tz Chambonnet)
