Ophélie Gaillard (cello)

Sirba Octet Members

Throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries, the United States, a democracy concerned with human rights, attracted emigrants of all origins. The young nation embodied a land free from repression for the composers brought together here by Ophélie Gaillard in the spirit of humanism. After 'Alvorada', her globe-trotting cello leads us in the footsteps of Bloch, Korngold, Prokofiev, Chava Alberstein and Giora Feidmann, singing their exile. She gives us a film score (Korngold's Concerto), a prayer (From Jewish Life), an Hebraic narrative (Schelomo), a lullaby, a wedding dance... The spirit of celebration, tenderness, religious meditation: so many facets of daily life and the culture of several generations of Jewish immigrants.

“The French cellist offers big-boned, passionate accounts of works exploring Jewish identity and diaspora in early twentieth-century America; the single-movement Korngold concerto in particular comes off with real silver-screen sweep and élan, and the much-recorded Bloch more than holds its own in the face of distinguished competition on disc.” Katherine Cooper, Presto Classical, May 2017

“a masterly, one-movement creation, full of driven, passionately songful inspiration and finds in Ophélie Gaillard a thrillingly committed champion” Classical Ear, 23rd June 2017 ****

“Gaillard’s glorious cello playing keeps the emotion raw and immediate throughout the programme, grabbing us by the scruff of the neck with a red-hot interpretation of Schelomo. Her tone is vivid, driven and lamenting. It could sound clichéd to say the music just pours out of her, but it really does…Gaillard gives [the Korngold] the performance of its life, angry, molten and impassioned.” BBC Music Magazine, August 2017 *****

“Throughout the programme one is aware of Ophélie Gaillard’s acute sense of engagement, stylish and expressive playing, conveying a feeling this is music to be enjoyed.” MusicWeb International, 7th July 2017

“Achingly beautiful music that is an ideal canvas for her impassioned and deeply expressive playing … a most exhilarating performance … Gaillard has an undoubted affinity with Korngold’s sumptuously beautiful music” The Strad, July 2017

with Ophélie Gaillard (cello) & Lise Berthaud (viola)


Novus Quartet

After an audacious label and album debut dedicated to Webern, Beethoven and Yun, the young musicians of the Novus Quartet interpret with passion two essential works from Tchaikovsky's chamber music: the First Quartet and the Sextet 'Souvenir de Florence' aided and abetted by two guests, cellist Ophélie Gaillard and viola player Lise Berthaud.

These two works, milestones in the career of the composer (the first written in 1871; the second in 1887), show Tchaikovsky's inclination for popular melodies. Clarity and technique serving musical expression, the fiery strings of the Novus Quartet spread a warm, homogenous sound that invites melancholy, in the slow movements, and paints the exultation of Tchaikovsky's poetic universe.

Pulcinella Orchestra

After the success of their first volume Ophélie Gaillard and Pulcinella propose a second disc devoted to Johann Sebastian Bach's most talented and surprising son, Carl Philipp Emanuel (1714-1788). The Sinfonia in C major expresses multiple emotions, ranging from irrepressible suffering in the Adagio to joyous release and insouciance in the concluding Allegretto, tinged with near-Mozartian grace. The Cello Concerto in B flat reveals the influence of the waning Baroque era and Vivaldi in particular. The Sinfonia in E minor, nicknamed 'Fandango' and dating from his Berlin years, is commonly regarded as one of his finest symphonies. The particularly virtuosic Sonata for cello piccolo and keyboard shows to advantage the two soloists of this recording: Ophélie Gaillard and Francesco Corti, whose fieriness is further revealed in the Harpsichord Concerto in D minor.

“Ophélie Gaillard is an eloquent and elegant soloist possessing pleasing tone in the Cello Concerto No 2 in B flat major, lively and reflective in nature as required.” Classical Ear, 16th June 2016

Cellists of Haute Ecole de Genève

'Alvorada' or an invitation to travel with cellist Ophélie Gaillard and her magical cello: a musical tour from Spain to Latin America (Brazil, Argentina, Cuba) featuring, in particular, the composers Villa-Lobos, Granados, Piazzolla and Jobim.

In an exceptional mixture of classical pieces and arrangements of the greatest themes of this intense music, the cello sings with the bandoneon, dances with the piano, guitar or percussion, and abandons itself in amorous intimacy with the voices.

'Alvorada' immerses us in a sound universe where the feverish energy of the rhythms of this Hispanic and South-American music entrances us and from which a sensual nostalgia responds to a dizzying tango. All the senses are aroused when hearing these spellbinding songs and rhythms.

"Some years ago in Seville, basking in the heat of the afternoon sun and still dazzled by the multi-coloured tiles in the streets of the old city, I was sitting under the majestic trees in the exquisite garden of Casa de Pilatos and began to toy with the idea of one day being able to share the feelings and revelations I had enjoyed in my many journeys through southern parts—both in the course of my frequent tours of Spain but also throughout Latin America. With only my cello for travelling-companion, I visited the four corners of the globe, often playing the Catalan master Gaspar Cassadó’s cello sonata, a living metaphor for Spain, his native territory. From the very first note, we are standing on the hard-baked earth of Andalusia under a burning sun. The silvery olives, gnarled and desiccated though they are, bear wondrous fruit; the scent of the orange trees and jasmine invades our senses so recently wakened from the depths of a stolen siesta as we sit beneath an arbour by a Mozarabic fountain. Cassadó’s piece was the inspiration that engendered this recording, albeit in secret, and allowed me to fulfil my deep wish to touch your hearts with the vivid impressions and emotions I experienced in the course of my travels. To share this dream, I needed to surround myself with outstanding musicians, each one of them alive to all the nuances of their respective art and traditions, deeply-rooted and yet free to go where they pleased and open to every suggestion." Ophélie Gaillard

“Gaillard maintains her identity as a classical cellist but displays a happy adaptability to her 26 hand-picked collaborator, not with the reserve of an outsider but with the invention of a passionate convert…[the disc] goes so much further than most of Gaillard's classical colleagues.” Gramophone Magazine, September 2015

“The sound quality is truly exceptional – every instrument is clear and detailed … [a] beautifully recorded and performed musical journey.” MusicWeb International, 27th September 2015

“From the outstanding bandoneon player Juanjo Mosalini to Gabriel Sivak’s light, fluent arrangements and the finely balanced recording, many inspirations went into the making of Alvorada … Binding all this together is Gaillard’s cello. Her playing, with wide vibrato and warm tone, is beguiling in each genre covered.” The Strad, December 2015

Yossif Ivanov (violin), Beatrice Muthelet (viola), Ophélie Gaillard (cello), Stephane Logerot (double bass), Delphine Bardin (piano)

A summit of romantic music in a Schubertiade of outstanding musicians and served by a superb sound recording with the signature of Nicolas Bartholomée.

The Piano Quintet in A major Op. 114 was composed in 1819 (Schubert was 22), at the request of Sylvester Paumgartner, a wealthy music patron and amateur cellist. Its title, Die Forelle (The Trout) refers to its fourth-movement set of variations on the composer’s earlier song of that name. The compelling Sonatina in D Major, Op.posth. 137, no. 1 (1817) is really a sonata for piano and violin (the term sonatina was used to give these pieces greater appeal for amateur musicians). It is heavily influenced by Mozart and Beethoven, Schubert’s principal models, and he unmistakeably quotes Mozart in the first movement, where he takes up the theme from the E minor Violin Sonata K304.

Pulcinella Orchestra

A portrait, on the tercentenary of the composer's birth, of Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach (1714-1788), probably the most gifted of the sons of Johann Sebastian Bach. Highly admired in his own century by Haydn, Gluck and Mozart, he stands out today as a brilliant and highly original composer. For CPE Bach, music had to be an expression of personal feelings and to achieve his aim, he revolutionised the established principles of form, harmony and rhythm. The Trio Sonata 'Sanguineus und Melancholicus' is a rarity in the composer's output in that it is a quasi-programmatic work. It presents a conversation between one sanguine (first violin) and the other melancholic (second violin). The same duality is found throughout the recordings presented here, from the well-known Sinfonia No. 5 to the two brilliant cello concertos. Under the bow of cellist Ophélie Gaillard, at the head of the Pulcinella Orchestra, these pieces come as a revelation!

“the group's well-nigh impeccable ensemble and palpable enthusiasm make it an ideal vehicle for CPE Bach at his most stormy and passionate. In the concertos, the energy is lightly handled, Gaillard dancing off-the-string with impressive bow-control.” BBC Music Magazine, June 2014 ****
