Alongside the Sonata Op.36 Emmanuelle Bertrand and Pascal Amoyel have transcribed some of the delightful Lyric Pieces as a sort of personal diary.They retrace the life of Grieg, from the little Arietta of 1867 to the final backward glance of Remembrances (1901). The programme also includes two original pieces for this formation, the Intermezzo and Grieg's own transcription of the Scherzo from his Third Violin Sonata. Discovered by the wider public when she won the young soloist category at the Victoires de la Musique Classique in 2001, Emmanuelle Bertrand is today among the foremost representatives of the French school of cellists. Her harmonia mundi recordings as a soloist or in tandem with the pianist Pascal Amoyel have received many prestigious critical accolades.
“Emmanuelle Bertrand and pianist Pascal Amoyel have an exquisitely sensitive partnership, at its best in passages of lingering lyricism.”
“…Emmanuelle Bertrand and Pascal Amoyel… here bring together Grieg's only cello sonata with a collection of transcriptions from his many piano pieces… it makes an attractive disc, well played and recorded as it is.”
