“ Florentin is absolutely stunning, and his adaptation of Bach's chaconne for violin leaves us speechless.
What a prodigious musician! ”
FRANCE MUSIQUE, Corinne Schneider
“ Florentin Ginot is constantly experimenting with the renewal of his solo repertoire. Through Bach and Biber, he reinvents the Baroque classics with art and manner, taking the double bass to new heights. ”
L’ALSACE, Disque du jour
“ Perhaps the most beautiful CD of the past year, in which Florentin Ginot's sublime double bass gives a surprising new dimension to the masterpieces of Bach and Biber. ”
“ This CD is one of those that intrigues at first, and transforms the improbable into the obvious. We thank Florentin Ginot and his two partners for this unexpected demonstration, with the soles of the wind.”
“ Florentin Ginot, charismatic ”
“ Initiated almost anonymously, his double bass solo (Ombres Portées, world premiere) imposes itself in a chalouped dimension which, from the noisy rattle to the jazzy riff, owes a lot to the impressive commitment of Florentin Ginot (23 years old, a name to remember). ”
"If it were necessary to illustrate the benefits of a close collaboration between a composer and a performer, it is Daniel D'Adamo's Ombres portées which, for this edition of Présences, would be the best example. The young bassist Florentin Ginot is not only a breathtaking virtuoso, but he also plays by heart a dozen minutes of music that he knows in every detail for having contributed to it, and in which he throws himself body and soul - so that he appears on stage in a state of absolute serenity. ”
"Impressive on an instrument whose composer emphasizes the full range of the spectrum, including the fragile and microtonal trebles, Florentin Ginot leads the process with a raging and supple gesture, especially when he tames his low string with its sensual and deep foliage. ”
"The dreamlike sensitive plucked double bass by Florentin Ginot. ”
