Guitarist David Jacques returns with a second volume of Histoires de Guitares (Guitar Stories), featuring 15 historical guitars from his private collection, most of them built by the best 19th century luthiers. Each guitar is featured in repertoire that suits the instrument’s character, and each has a story to tell.

At the beginning of the 19th century, the composer and guitar-maker collaboration enriched the guitar with a variety of models, materials, and techniques. At the time the guitar was “the fashionable instrument,” a must in music halls and European courts.

In this second volume of guitar stories, guitarist David Jacques brings together 15 instruments made by the best luthiers of the 19th century. These rare guitars are part of his important private collection.

Originally from Saint-Georges de Beauce, au Québec, David Jacques holds a doctorate in early music performance from the University of Montreal. He first studied classical guitar at Cégep de Sainte-Foy, Laval University and the Conservatoire de musique de Québec. He has collaborated on more than fifty recordings on the XXI-21, ATMA, Oz and Analekta labels, many of which have been nominated for ADISQ, JUNOs, Opus Awards and ECHO Classiks.
