Album Notes
« I was quite impressed the first time I heard Mr. Vachez’s music and guitar playing...
As a composer, not only has he very good musical ideas, he knows how to develop them extremely well by blending traditional and contemporary languages in a very personal way. Mr. Vachez has a vast harmonic vocabulary which form solid grounds for the beautiful melodies he creates. When playing his own music, he makes excellent use of color and timbre, by taking full advantage of the instrument's capabilities. His use of extended techniques are tastefully crafted and always in the right places and in right amounts.
He is also a fine interpreter of other composers, and definitely does great justice to the repertoire he chose.
The final result is excellent and refreshing. Most importantly, it keeps active listeners interested at all times. »

Clarice Assad (New-York)

Winner of several prizes in international competitions, french guitarist Sébastien VACHEZ is currently leading a career as a concertist, composer, arranger and teacher, and he is certainly no stranger to the platform of international festivals having performed at « Rencontres de la Guitare d’Antony » (Paris), « Silesian Guitar Autumn » in Tichy and Krynica festival (Poland), « Cahiers de la Guitare » festival in Musicora (Paris), Guitar Gala (Sweden), Athens and Hermoupolis festivals (Greece), Zagreb “Guitar Days” (Croatia) and others.

In France as well as abroad, he regularly played solo recitals, concerts within the « Couleurs Tango » trio and with orchestra as a soloist.

As a teacher, he also appeared in master-classes and in guitar orchestras workshops.

He also recorded two CD released by Mandala/Harmonia Mundi (« Comme une Saudade » and « Cuba Libre ») and his own works are regularly published by Doberman – Yppan (Canada), d’Oz (Canada) and Henri Lemoine (Paris).

This is what Roland Dyens (world renowned french guitarist and composer , teacher at Conservatoire National Supérieur de Paris) wrote about Sébastien Vachez :

“I’m sure that this young subtle and cultured artist will very quickly distinguish himself, by his creative musicality, from the plethora of excellent guitarists who, precisely, are only excellent guitarists.”
