The disc French Resonance praised by critics
Recorded with pianist François Dumont and released by Fuga Libera / Outhere, the disc consists of two sonatas by Louis Vierne and Gabriel Pierné, that are, according to the violinist, “animated by a passionate wind”. Two minor compositions of Gabriel Fauré compose the rest of the disc.
On another hand, Vierne’s sonata, darker, more romantic, let the violinist express a more emotional part of her bow and her personality : « Elsa Grether must give up the play of high fantaisie by Pierné to animate this vast recitative, somewhat uninterrupted in spite of the four movements […]. The bow speaks under her fingers […]. »
Elsa Grether’s New Year’s Concert
Elsa Grether’s latest concert, to celebrate the New Year, allowed her to demonstrate once more her virtuosity with the Mulhouse Symphonic Orchestra. Her performance in the Introduction and rondo capriccioso op.28 by Camille Saint-Saëns was particularly noted by several critics.
