For its first concert in 2021, I Musici offers an overview of the guitar with renowned guitarist David Jacques. As a passionate collector of antique instruments, he will offer a varied program, ranging from Vivaldi to flamenco and including works from here, and using a dozen different guitars in the process.

Native of Saint-Georges de Beauce, David Jacques holds a doctorate in early music performance from the Université de Montréal. He has collaborated on more than 50 recordings on the XXI-21, ATMA, d’Oz and Analekta labels, many of which have been nominated for ADISQ, JUNO, Opus and ECHO Classik awards. His albums Pièces de guitare de Mr. Rémy Médard (2008), Tango Boréal (2012) and Pampa Blues (2014) have earned him Opus Awards. Parallel to his activities as a performer, David is a professor of classical guitar and lute at the Music Department of the Cégep de Sainte-Foy and at the Faculty of Music of Laval University.
