Boris Gaquere

guitarist and composer from Brussels, Belgium. He has performed for audiences throughout the world, and his compositions, published by Productions d'Oz (Canada), GSP (California, USA) and Editions Lemoine (Paris, France) are played and recorded from Canada to Japan. He has made several recordings, including Xeque-Mate (VG1004) with Odair Assad joining on a few tracks; Carpe Diem (VG1010), a baroque album and Tempo Feliz (Mogno F010), with Brazilian percussionist Renato Martins. He also took part on Yasuji Ohagi or Sébastien Vachez' CD.

I don't exactly remember how I decided to start playing the guitar, but when I was about 9 years old, my father suggested me and my brother, Geoffrey to learn music. Geoffrey got a clarinet and me, a classical guitar. My brother is now a comedian and director in Canada... but don't talk to him about his experience with music!

The first time I thought about being a professional musician was where I listened to Marc Ysaye radio show back in 1990. I couldn't believe what I was listening to. At the time, the only guitar recordings I had were a few Alexandre Lagoya's my dad gave me. But what felt into my ears that day was... Led Zeppelin! With the little money I had, I went to buy a few albums of them, and I kept listening to their music every day for years!... I received an electric guitar and I tried to figure out what I had to do to become a rock star... keeping learning classical guitar! Then, my second "musical shock" happened when I met the Assad Brothers in 1995. I put my Ibanez RG-750 back in its flight-case, and started to be a 'classical guitarist'!

I invite you to discover my work throughout this website, hoping you will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed to do it for several years now.
