“I had the pleasure of welcoming Michel Beauchamp several times to the Chapelle historique du Bon-Pasteur in Montreal, where I was the artistic director, to interpret brilliantly, among others, the complete works for guitar of Tárrega and Bach that he edited and recorded.

 Michel Beauchamp is an outstanding musician and guitarist who demonstrates an unusual technique and, contrary to so many others, is scrupulously respectful of the texts he interprets with tenderness, elegance, musicality, poetry and refinement. So many qualities that characterize his playing and, the pleasure experienced by his audience is the demonstration.»

- Guy Soucie, Artistic Director
