Gabetta/Chamayou recital

Post by Rach3 » Thu Aug 22, 2019 8:28 am

Wonderful playing by both artists.Have heard Chamayou play “Miroirs” several times, one of his best here, and the sonatas are gems, the Britten not heard often (? ) I wonder:

Ravel - Pavane pour une infante défunte - Miroirs
Debussy - Sonate pour violoncelle en ré mineur, L. 135.
Britten - Sonate pour violoncelle en do majeur, op. 65.
Mendelssohn - Song Without Words en ré majeur, op. 109 (encore)


Avec Sol Gabetta, violoncelle et Bertrand Chamayou, piano
Enregistré le 29 juin 2019 à Olsberg

The Britten was of course written for Rostropovich who recorded it memorably with Britten. But their live Aldeburgh performance was better!

I have a DGG or possibly Haenssler cd of the Britten,Bridge and Bax cello sonatas by Jonathan Moser I can recommend.

Excellent concert: the second half with cellist Gabetta in particular. Bertrand Chamayou is a pianist I now follow, with excellent results. He's got technique to burn (notably in the Ravel), and his collaborative style in both the Debussy and Britten sonatas brought those pieces to life for me. Been a fan of the Debussy for many years, while the Britten was my first hearing. It's an astonishingly good piece, very well-played by both participants, in a performance that brought applause from the audience after some particularly rigorous calisthenics. Bravi tutti, and thanks Rach3 for posting this energetic recital!
