Notes and Editorial Reviews

On Le violoncelle parle (the Cello Speaks), Emmanuelle Bertrand performs a wide-ranging selection of compositions for solo cello. The works Bertrand has chosen speak to the idioms of each of the specific composers' cultural and musical backgrounds. Featured are Spaniard Gaspar Cassadó's Suite for Solo Cello, British composer Benjamin Britten's Suite No.3 for Solo Cello as well as Frenchman Pierre Amoyel's Itinérance and Hungarian Zoltán Kodály's Sonata for Solo Cello. In Bertrand's hands, the cello truly 'speaks' and takes us beyond geographical boundaries and straight to the heart of the language of cultural inspiration.
