Watch: Guitarist Thibaut Garcia Plays Music By Silvius Leopold Weiss

· Feb. 20, 2017, 11:44 pm

Guitarist Thibaut Garcia opted to play something a little different during his recent session. Garcia performed a movement from "Suite L'Infidele" by Silvius Leopold Weiss, a German composer and lute player born two years after J.S. Bach.

Garcia finds lots of nuance in the piece -- quiet pauses in the melody and lightning-fast runs that slip by if you're not listening carefully.

Garcia began playing guitar at age 7. He won several major guitar competitions in recent years, including a 2015 first prize from the Guitar Foundation of America. 

He's spent a big portion of his time on the road recently, including a February stop at Metro State University of Denver for a recital.
