Victor Julien-Laferrière cello
Guillaume Bellom piano
Two of the leading lights of the new generation of performers come together in a programme reflecting their close musical rapport.
Brahms Sonata for cello and piano No. 1 op. 38
Janáček Pohádka, for cello and piano
Rachmaninov Sonata for cello and piano op. 19
Listening to these two musicians, who are some of the most appealing figures currently on the circuit, arouses a spontaneous feeling of gratitude. As nominees for the Victoires de la musique, Queen Elisabeth competition and Diapason d’Or, they could easily have rested on their laurels with this array of accolades. But that would be to misjudge Victor Julien-Laferrière and Guillaume Bellom, insatiable musicians who are always keen to go one better and give of their very best. Just listen to the regal style of their Rachmaninov, and the peerless dreaminess of their Janáček! They do not make any compromises with the truth and their performances ooze total authenticity. They make close eye contact onstage and we are almost fearful of interrupting the poetic intimacy of their infinitely touching Brahms Sonata No. 1.
