Notes & Reviews:

For his second Analekta album, cellist Stephane Tetreault along with pianist Marie-Eve Scarfone, celebrate the music of Vienna. Their performance transports us from the grace of a Haydn divertimento to Schubert's divine "Arpeggione", to say nothing of the depth of Brahms' Cello Sonata No.1. Nothing less than sublime!

Audiophilia
Tchaikovsky's Pezzo Capriccioso had the audience gasping (accompanied superbly by Marie-Ève Scarfone), the Divertimento in D Major by Haydn was a dream of subtlety and ensemble and Alexina Louie's Bringing the Tiger Down From the Mountain II (1991), my personal favourite performance of the day, was a workshop on extended techniques under the watchful eye of an Olivier Messiaen sound world. This was knockout stuff.

I personally love the performance style of Tetreault who maintains firm control of pacing and balance while delivering rich characterization while offering an emotion filled performance. The young star of the cello world recently released his debut CD, featuring the works of Saint-Saens and Tchaikovsky which was met with much critical acclaim in Canada and recently praised in classical music's world-leading Gramophone and The Strad magazines.

Gramophone
From the very first bars of Saint-Saens's First Cello Concerto you sense that this disc is going to be exhilarating and rewarding. The performers launch the concerto with terrific passion and positive intent, and thereafter call into play a discriminating, captivating spectrum of interpretative sensibility. The solo playing is astonishingly mature not merely in its technical attributes but also in its warmth, brilliance and subtlety of colour and inflection, so it comes as a shock to realise that Stephane Tetreault is 19 years old. His is a name to watch.

The Strad Magazine
Stephane Tetreault's playing - he is technically commanding yet musically stylistic and sensitive. His vibrato and tone are varied, his bowing techniques immaticulate and his awareness of harmony and consequent shading omnipresent (...) the ubiquitous Swan is given a sumptuously refined performance and the Allegro appassionato is full of verve..
