An active ambassador of classical guitar around the world, Jérémy Jouve continues his international tours and recording with one objective: to attune classical guitar with modernity.
He studied at the Ecole Normale de Musique and the Conservatoire Supérieur de Paris (CNSMDP) with great masters, among them Alberto Ponce and Roland Dyens. He was steered toward a deep love and respect of manuscripts, an unending search for a beautiful sound, and a thorough understanding of the architecture of the pieces he chooses to interpret, with a strong stamp of sincerity.
His GFA win (2003) led to a five month North American tour as well as to a first recording with Naxos. Other recordings include two CDs dedicated to the works of Joaquín Rodrigo, a live concert DVD, and a guitar/flute duo CD for Reference Recordings that was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2014.
