Guitarist David Jacques returns with the third volume of Histoires de guitares (Guitar Stories), featuring 16 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 unique story to tell.

In the early 1800s, the fruitful collaboration between composers and guitar-makers greatly enabled the instrument’s evolution, thanks to a variety of models, materials, and techniques. The guitar was considered the most fashionable instrument of the time, a must‑have in 19th century music halls and European courts.

The rare guitars from Jacques’ private collection hail among other cities from Strasbourg, Moscou, Paris, Mirecourt, Cadix, and Québec — the major cities where the finest guitars were crafted for outstanding musicians.
