Fauré & Saint-Saëns

Orchestras / Ensembles
Catalogue numberMIR193
Release date2013-01-28

Saint-Saëns and Fauré, two leading representatives of Late Romanticism, teacher and pupil linked by the same musical ideal. Both of them, with the fire of youth or in their full maturity, produced tender, luminous works. Confronted with Wagnerian mists, they brightened the French musical landscape. At her desk as leader of the Orchestre de Chambre de Paris or as soloist, the violinist Deborah Nemtanu presents her vision of the last French Romantics.
With a new conductor, Thomas Zehetmair, and a new name, the Orchestre de Chambre de Paris gives carte blanche to its leader, Deborah Nemtanu. Whether playing within the orchestra or as a soloist, the young violinist retraces the teacher-pupil link between Saint-Saëns and Fauré. Deborah Nemtanu has recorded a rare work by the former, the Concerto op.20, a youthful composition that reveals a Romantic, exalted, impetuous Saint-Saëns. Mirroring the work of this youthful master is the plenitude of Fauré in the Pelléas et Mélisande Suite, which the Orchestre de Chambre de Paris has played for many years. The French spirit of this disc would not be complete without the crackling virtuosity of the Saint-Saëns Introduction et Rondo Capriccioso and the gentle mood of the Romance and Berceuse of the two composers. Music that offers bright skies and an escape from Wagnerian mists and Brahmsian polyphonies.
