Music Network presents celebrated French cellist Emmanuelle Bertrand and acclaimed recitalist Pascal Amoyel (France)

“A gleaming performance of Debussy’s Cello Sonata from Bertrand and pianist Pascal Amoyel” – The Guardian

“Together they make eloquent magic” – San Francisco Chronicle

“Rich pickings! Bertrand and Amoyel complement each other superbly.” – BBC Music Magazine

Drink in the honeyed tones of French cellist Emmanuelle Bertrand performing with long-term collaborator and acclaimed recitalist Pascal Amoyel on piano at the Georgian Large Room, City Hall, Waterford on Thursday 30th March at 7.30pm as part of a Music Network tour. These two artists make a terrific duo, bringing real passion to everything they play. For this concert they will perform a programme of Romantic music by Fauré, Saint-Saëns, Liszt, Brahms and music by Irish composer Kevin Volans.

Music Network is delighted to showcase the celebrated French cellist Emmanuelle Bertrand, winner of a prestigious Victoire de la Musique Classique (a French Grammy). Acclaimed for her technical prowess, “haunting” lyricism and exquisite tone, Emmanuelle has performed as a soloist with the Flanders Symphony Orchestra, Moscow State Symphony Orchestra and Orchestre Symphonique du Grand Montréal amongst others.
Voted “Solo Instrumental Discovery of the Year” at the Victoires de la Musique in 2005, Pascal Amoyel has established himself as a pianist of note with an impressive career both as a soloist and a chamber musician, appearing with orchestras throughout Europe, America, Russia, Japan and China.

The duo have performed together for many years, garnering widespread acclaim from critics and audiences alike and in particular for the “wonderful singing quality” of their playing – the nuanced phrasing of Amoyel the perfect foil for the glowing tones and textures of Bertrand’s cello. Unmissable!

Music Network tours are funded by the Arts Council and are presented in association with RTÉ lyric fm. This tour is presented in partnership with the French Embassy in Ireland.
