Has anyone else been astonished by the virtuosity of this young man? He plays classical as well as Gypsy jazz (not sure what that is, actually!)

Yeah, the hands and brains on this kid are unreal. I'm a total fan-boy. I feel like the food critic from Ratatouille and his "defense of the new" speech when talking about him. Most of the videos he's posted are his jazz-flavored arrangements/compositions but there's an absolutely killer Scarlatti video out there for the purists. I think he's about to release an "album" which I'm sure will be out of this world.

He is an amazing guitarist and so young.He seems to play in duo with a Samuelito (flamenco guitar)
I have spent a few hours listening to what they play a few months ago on Youtube.
Here is a link to Antoine Boyer's interpretation Astor Piazzolla : Invierno Porteño (on electric guitar)
Amazing interpretation.

Congrats and gratitude to the OP for this rare find !
I was baffled by some vids on YT and ended up in buying Antoine Boyer's album "Cameleon waltz" which came as an aftershock...
Such musical maturity is almost unheard of for a young musician ; his Scarlatti is one of the best I've ever heard (and I'm quite demanding, being a huge Scarlatti fan) and his rendition of Bill Evan's We will meet again is simply breathtaking and leaves me speechless.

Antoine Boyer deserves a wide recognition — I mean, there's really only a bunch of musicians in this league during a whole century, so don't miss them !

For me, he's up there with the best Scarlatti performers.

Just saw this fairly recent video which is amazing:
