“The French cellist’s tone is light and fragrant. He plays with not only a sense of pert 18th century but also a modernity as if this were music newly composed.” -Los Angeles Times

The virtuoso French cellist, recently named Instrumental Soloist of the Year by the French Classical Music Awards, makes his UChicago debut with a virtuoso program: Bach’s spiritual and intimate work for unaccompanied cello, Britten’s passionate suite written for the great Rostropovich, and concluding with Kodaly’s sonata, considered as among the greatest works written for cello.
