Un maintien, une grâce, que reflète son jeu subtil et profond, aussi brillant par les couleurs et la virtuosité que fascinant par les abîmes qu’il frôle.
Through this tribute to Nadia Boulanger, it’s also the important figure of the teacher which is celebrate. She is the one who allows Quincy Jones to studs an art which was forbiden to him in the USA because of his skin color. She was also Igor Stravinsky’s friend and confident.
The real gift of the recording are Nadia Boulanger’s Three pieces for cello and piano composed with an infinite delicacy in which we can sense all the love that this teacher – composer had for the great repertoire.
Her album is perfect for initiating the newcomers to classical music and to seduce the connoisseurs and make them say “I didn’t know this, it’s realy good !
Mademoiselle Boulanger gift was to find the singularity in each person and to make this singulartiy to bloom. She encouraged Astor Piazzolla to works on his argentinian roots rather than try to sounds like europeans compositions that don’t suit him.
I had to enter the universe of each composer. Those Nadia Boulanger’s students who find their own languages through her teaching.
