“Alexandre Bernoud has all the qualities that make him one of the very first guitarists of his generation:
Beyond a flawless and impressive technique, an exemplary commitment to serving a demanding and innovative repertoire,
and a musical discourse among the most thoughtful and expressive ones … “
Bernard Piris, composer
As pupil of François Castet at the Givors conservatoire, he receives a gold medal by unanimous vote and a recital prize with praise from the jury. He continues his studies under the Maestro Alberto Ponce at the École normale de musique de Paris and receives the “Diplôme supérieur d’exécution”. He is finalist at the international competition of Carpentras at the age of 19, laureate with special prize from the audience at the international René Bartoli competition in 1998.
In 2009 the prestigious record label GHA invites him to appear in their catalogue where he figures alongside such famous names of the contemporary guitar world as Sergio and Odiar Assad, Eduardo Isaac, David Russel… He thus becomes the second French guitarist, after Roland Dyens, to integrate this label so sought-after by guitarists.
He is dedicatee of several works by Bernard Piris, Juan Manuel Cortés and Jaime Cordoba including a concert from the latter, “Tierra de Ancestros” to be performed with orchestra in Nancy in February 2013.
Having obtained the “Diplôme d’état” at the age of 19 and the “Certificat d’aptitude” in 2002, he currently teaches at the Nîmes conservatory of music, dance and drama.
