AN INTENSE AND FASCINATING EXPLORATION OF THE MYRIAD FACETS OF THE VIOLIN OVER THE CENTURIES
Kaleidoscope. That single word encapsulates Elsa Grether’s aim in her new album: to illustrate the full expressive range of her violin by exploring its repertory in all its stylistic diversity. From Bach’s famous Chaconne to Tôn Thất Tiết’s contemporary idiom in Métal Terre Eau, by way of Eugène Ysaÿe, Aram Khachaturian, Arthur Honegger and Isaac Albéniz, the violinist’s third release for Fuga Libera offers a cocktail of colours and timbres. She charms her listeners with an invariably elegant sound and firmly sculpted lines as she invites us to explore this multifaceted instrument. A voyage of discovery across time, space and aesthetics that will appeal to the widest audience!
