“With Astrig Siranossian, the constellation of young cellists destined to shine in the international sky has gained a new star”

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.
