Dominique Field's name is inscribed in the great history of lutherie, in the line of and beside the great names of traditional French luthiers who, since René Lacôté in the 19th century, and later Robert Bouchet and Daniel Friederich, have raised this art to the highest level. His guitars have been played by some of the greatest concert artists such as Eduardo Isaac, Catherine Liolios, Alexandre Bernoud, the composer Bernard Piris, Scott Tennant, Giampaolo Bandini, in the new generation we can mention Adam Levin or Raphaël Feuillatre laureate of the GFA competition in 2018 and many others.

 

The first thing that impresses, even before hearing it, when you see a guitar built by Dominique Field is the beauty, the quality of the work reaches a level of perfection, refinement and elegance unheard of. The second thing that impresses when you hear the guitar is that all these qualities are reproduced in the musicality of the instrument. When we raise lutherie to such a level, it becomes an art, the guitar is no longer an "instrument" of music, but a musician in its proper place, an associate of the interpreter, it participates with him in the deployment of this musical beauty likely to affect those who listen to it. This guitar built in 2020 that we have the chance to present is no exception to this rule. Having had Dominique Field's guitars from different eras, one realizes that, although starting from an already very high level, and reaching other levels that one would have thought unsurpassable, he has known, over time, to continue to elevate his art.
