  • Print


Sheikh Arif Bulbon :
The award-winning French guitarist Thibault Cauvin (Born on July 16, 1984) was born with a guitar in his hands, given by his father, himself a musician. And he followed the natural path from then on. He first studied at the Bordeaux Conservatoire and later at the Paris Conservatoire National Supérieur, graduating with honors. Quite playful, he became passionate about international competitions, the only springboard for an artist who wants to make a career. Widely acclaimed for his youth, passion and creativity, he wouldn't stop winning prizes and aged 20, he had won a total of 36 prizes (13 first prizes) - more than any guitar player. He got more and more concert engagements. The world wanted to hear the young lord of the six strings.
Thibault has been touring extensively for 15 years now, playing in the most prestigious halls in the world. Virtually 120 countries, 1000 solo concerts with this unique guitar stirring the New York Carnegie Hall, the Moscow Tchaikovsky Hall, the Shanghai Concert Hall, the London Queen Elizabeth Hall, etc... As he loves very special musical moments, Thibault proposed outside of his regular concerts, a 'Magic Tour.' This series of performances in symbolic, atypical and magic places began at the Eiffel Tower in 2017 and has already halted at the Beijing Forbidden City, the Hague Peace Palace, the Quito ruins in Ecuador, the Marrakech palm grove, the Royal Great Beach for more than 40 000 people.
Thibault’s universal playing and graceful personality charmed and brings together all audiences. The specialised critics as well as the most popular medias are unanimously seduced by the Cauvin Phenomenon. The young lord of the strings has grown up and his dream to move people’s heart seems to come true.
Thibault is also the official spokesperson for French Blood Donation Day, he was named 'Ambassadeur de Bordeaux,' he is the patron of the ‘Paris Guitar Foundation,’ and as a passionate surfer, he is sponsored by Billabong. The sky is the limit for Thibault and his guitar. His inspired, expressive and natural playing can only please all types of audiences across generations and abolish boundaries. As he plays the guitar - a both popular and erudite instrument which is pretty new to classical music in comparison to others - it is likely to become a queen among musical instruments in the 21st century.  Thibault Cauvin is the one and only guitarist to have won 36 prizes in major international guitar competitions.
A classical guitar concert organised by Aliance Française de Dhaka was held at Bangladesh Shilpakaka Academy recently featuring the award-winning French guitarist Thibault Cauvin.  
Cauvin - whom Télérama described as ‘the champion of classical guitar’ and Los Angeles Times described as “just incredible, don’t miss him” - is the only guitarist in the world to win 13 international first prizes.
His brilliant, inspired and eloquent playing puts up a feast to the ears breaking boundaries and admixing audiences from different places.
With his latest stop being Dhaka, Cauvin has been touring extensively for 15 years now, playing in the most prestigious halls in the world - virtually 120 countries, 1000 solo concerts with his guitar stirring the New York Carnegie Hall, the Moscow Tchaikovsky Hall, the Shanghai Concert Hall, the London Queen Elizabeth Hall, to name a few.
The programme was basically organised by Alliance Française de Dhaka - with the support of the Embassy of France to Bangladesh, Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy, Oryx Bangladesh and Gandharbpur Water Treatment SNC (a joint venture of Suez International and OTV-Veolia). n
