Gerard Abiton always renews his repertory in quest of musical emotions, unbelievable perfection, and simple happiness, which he easily shares. A story close to his heart, shall we say. Gerard Abiton performs regularly on international stages.

His first teacher was the guitarist and tenor Christian Jean. This encounter has durably influenced Gerard Abiton's musical and aesthetic direction, in particular in the transition from natural expression to the performance of the guitar.

"I prefer what moves me to what surprises me": this quote by François Couperin always guide her sensitive approach to music.

At 16 years old, Gerard Abiton joined the Conservatoire Supérieur National de Musique of Paris (cnsmdp) in Alexander Lagoya's class.

In parallel to his instrumental studies, he studied harmony and counterpoint with Alain Truchot, his professor at the Conservatoire national superieur de musique of Paris. Gerard Abiton also attended the summer classes of Andres Segovia (Spain), Abel Carlevaro (Uruguay), and John Williams (Australia / Great Britain). In 1990 and 1991, he completed his training by attending the baroque interpretation classes of Herve Niquet, the Musical Director of the "Concert Spirituel".

In 1981, Gerard Abiton won the 37th International Contest of Musical Execution of Geneva and the "Franck Martin" special price from the Musicians Association of Geneva. In 1983, he became the winner of the Georges Cziffra association.

Since 2010 he teaches at the "Conservatoire à Rayonnement Régional" and the "Pôle Supérieur" of Paris (France) and he regularly sits at juries of nationals and international contests.

The transcript has always been an important part of the musical world of Gérard Abiton. His desire to expand the repertoire of the guitar led him to write many adaptations for its instrument (J.S.Bach, F.Couperin, A.Forqueray, J.Duphly, J.Haydn, F.Mendelssohn, E.Granados, I.Albeniz, J.Rodrigo ...)

Gerard Abiton's repertoire is eclectic, with a certain tendency for the first half XXth century's music as bears his recordings devoted to the composers M.M. Ponce, J. Turina, F. Mompou, F.M. Torroba, J. Rodrigo and D. Scarlatti.

Dedicated to many works of composers - J.C. Wolff, P. Leroux, G. Iglesia, R. Campo, Y. Krier, A. Margoni, J.D. Krynen, S. Assad, Tôn Thât Tiet, M. Delaistier, T. Brenet, G. Drozd, R. Creuse...- Gerard Abiton reveals the guitar's integration in the different musical trends of our time.
