Recently dubbed “the new face of classical guitar”, 23-year-old Garcia has already cut a swathe through the world’s foremost guitar competitions — taking firsts in six of them — thanks to his gossamer light touch, wonderfully sensitive interpretations and a repertoire ranging from Piazzolla and Piaf, to world premieres of compositions by composers such as Jean-Frédéric Neuburger and Vincent A. Jockin. In 2016, Thibaut Garcia made his concerto debut with the Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse. He was appointed the BBC New Generation Artist in London in 2017, leading him to perform in recitals and concerto performances around the UK. He is signed exclusively with Warner Classics/Erato for his recording projects. His second album, 'Tribute to J. S. Bach', will be released in the Autumn of 2018.
At the age of 20, Isang Enders was appointed principal cello of the Dresden Staatskapelle, making him the youngest section leader in Germany. Noted for his clear, penetrating tone and his big-hearted, dynamic performances, Enders has enjoyed collaborations with the Stuttgarter Philharmoniker and Stavanger Symphony orchestras and performs regularly with the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France and Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra. He has worked with eminent conductors including Myung-Whun Chung, Christoph Eschenbach, Zubin Mehta and Vasily Petrenko. His highly-acclaimed and early recording of the Bach Cello Suites on Berlin Classics (2014) was a triumph.
