New review of the disc French Resonance

“Elsa Grether and François Dumont wonderful in Pierné and Vierne”

A new laudatory article was published in the musical magazine Res Musica, on the disc French Resonance by violinist Elsa Grether and pianist François Dumont :

“In « French Resonance », Elsa Grether and François Dumont are irresistible in the rare sonatas for violin and piano of Pierné and Vierne, respectively from 1901 and 1908. ”

“The interpretation is alternately passionate, delicate, dreamy, dramatic, expressing torment and appeasement, musically and psychologically, in a style sometimes blossoming and sometimes more introvert, that the musicians manage wonderfully. The violin’s gusto, on the brink of madness, is ideally sustained by the piano which has the same excitement but keep some coldness, creating a balance that can be considered magical.”

Victoria Okada, “Elsa Grether et François Dumont magiques dans Pierné et Vierne“, Res Musica, January 23rd 2016.
