|Openness and curiosity particularly characterize the musical thought of Pierre Bibault, multifaceted French guitarist, soloist and chamber musician as talented on classical guitar as on electric guitar. Pioneer and dedicatee of new repertoires, transcriber, he explores all the musics from the Renaissance to nowadays.
Pierre Bibault was born in 1979 in Paris and began studying music with the piano at the age of 7, before discovering the electric guitar and then the classical guitar.
Pierre Bibault gives around forty concerts a year and has performed in over twenty countries, from Europe to the United States, to Canada, North Africa and Eastern Countries. He was invited by numerous and prestigious venues such as the Philharmony Halls of Paris, Brussels, Liege (BE), Lviv, Khmelnitskie (Ukraine), the St George’s Church Bloomsbury London, the Cathedral and the Museum of Contemporary Artin Liège, the Tyska Kyrkan in Stockholm, the Bon-Pasteur Chapel of Quebec, the Universities of Cincinnati and Indianapolis (USA), or the Cirque Royal and Flagey, the former Maison de la Radio in Brussels.
Chamber music occupies a prominent place in his career, since he plays in all types of formations: with cello, flute, violin, voice, chamber orchestra, symphony orchestra, the contemporary ensemble teRRitoiRes contempoR1.0 which he has initiated.
In 2015, Pierre Bibault premieres at the Philharmonie de Paris the “Symphony No. 16, Orgasm” for 100 electric guitars by Glenn Branca. He also participates to the musical hit production of Ars Lyrica “Fiddler on the Roof”, where he holds the guitar part in the orchestra. The Director renews their collaboration for interpreting “Brundibar” by Hans Krasa, given in Krakow as part of the Commemorations of the Liberation of Auschwitz in Poland, initiated by The Train of 1000 and supported by the European Commission.
In 2015, he resumes his solo career around a repertoire of contemporary works, combining classical and electric guitars, live electronics and recorder. He is signed by Dan McDaniel LLC, one of the most renowned American artists’ agents for the guitar, and by Calliope Records for his first solo record.
He is an adviser and co-manager of the Paris Guitar Foundation since its inception in 2014. The company specializes in medias, reports, and concerts organization, notably in support for the freedom of expression and to the French foundation Reporters Sans Frontières, following the tragic events in Paris in January 2015.
