Smooth world-fusion guitarist, Marc Antoine takes you to LAGUNA BEACH by way of his new music. His first new collection of songs in several years. Available on Woodward Avenue Records.
Marc-Antoine Charpentier (1643 - February 24, 1704) was a French composer of the Baroque era.
He was a prolific and versatile composer, producing music of the highest quality in several genres. His mastery in the composition of sacred vocal music was recognized and acknowledged by his contemporaries.
In their first release on harmonia mundi France, Sébastien Daucé and his musicians present a sumptuous interpretation of the six-voice motets composed by Marc-Antoine Charpentier for the House of Guise. These works, headed by the Miserere, constitute an unexpected parenthesis in the music of the Grand Siècle. The creative genius, the inwardness and the intense fervour of a composer surrounded by his faithful company of singers and instrumentalists speak to us all the more intimately because Charpentier appears here as both copyist (the surviving scores are in his handwriting) and performer – he sang the haute-contre part.
2012 album from the acclaimed guitarist. Guitar Destiny has a strong connection to Marc Antoine and his 11th release. He recalls always stopping to watch the trains go in and out of the station, when crossing an old bridge that was close to his home when he was a kid. Little did he know those train tracks would take him around the world in pursuit of an international and successful career. Marc's magic guitar touch ties it all up in this wonderful voyage thru places and musical genres.
Notre Histoire est une seconde aventure musicale profonde et intense. L'histoire de Marc Antoine ouvre un nouveau chapitre dans la soul et le R&B chantés en français. Si aux Etats-Unis, on classerait sans doute cet album dans la catégorie flatteuse du ''adult R&B'', la musique de Marc Antoine est plus ouverte et touche plus de générations, s’inscrivant tout simplement comme une des composantes modernes de la chanson française.
Guitarist Marc Antoine has established himself as a musician who brings out a distinctive sound mixing classical, Latin jazz and flamenco styles. This style has helped him gain momentum in the smooth jazz genre to release CDs that consistently top the charts.
