Acclaimed by international radio FIP as « the ambassador for classical guitar worldwide », Jérémy Jouve multiplies international tours, recordings, and collaborations with the greatest performers and composers.
His studies at the Ecole Normale de Musique and at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse (CNSMD) in Paris where he followed the teaching of the great masters Alberto Ponce and Roland Dyens, oriented him towards a committed and poetic approach to music, an incessant search for beautiful sounding, and a deep love and respect for the original compositions.
His young prodigy career began with a first concerto with orchestra at the age of 10, a gold medal awarded by the conservatory at 13, a first European tour at 16, and the prestigious Guitar Foundation of America (GFA) Prize won at the age of 24 in Mexico. From this extraordinary career, Jérémy Jouve keeps a strong mark of sincerity that he transmits today with passion to his students at the Conservatoire à rayonnement régional de Paris and the Pôle Supérieur Paris Boulogne-Billancourt, as well as during the masterclasses he delivers while touring.
In 2003, the GFA Prize opened the doors to a five-month North American tour and a first recording with Naxos records. He then released, in 2008 and 2011, with the same label, two albums devoted to the challenging work for solo guitar of Joaquín Rodrigo. Following this, a Melbay Concert Live DVD released in 2009 and a Reference Recordings album, Traveling Sonata, with flutist Viviana Guzman, nominated for the Grammy Awards in 2012, completed this cycle of recordings.
The album « Cavalcade », released in 2015, the fruit of Jérémy Jouve’s encounter with French composer Mathias Duplessy, opens the way to a series of collaborations with renowned composers such as Thierry Escaich, Karol Beffa and François Meïmoun, as well as with great chamber musicians such as François Salque, Pierre Fouchenneret, or artists performing world music such as Prabhu Edouard. Jérémy Jouve is also the Artistic Director of a festival he founded in 2019, the International Festival « Guitare en Alpes », in Savoie, of which Cecilia Rodrigo, daughter of the famous composer, is the godmother. While combining chamber music including the guitar and new compositions, the festival is one-of-a-kind bringing together the greatest talents around classical guitar and greatly contributing to the growth of the instrument’s repertoire.
Jérémy Jouve is currently devoted to the recording of two new albums, one featuring new chamber music compositions by Mathias Duplessy and another one with his long-time accomplice and violinist Pierre Fouchenneret.
Jérémy Jouve plays on Savarez, Alliance red and Cantiga Premium blue strings.
