with the Orchestre de Chambre de Paris, Douglas Boyd, Jérôme Ducros

'For years now, I’ve wanted to share an album that would explore the cello – which for most of my life has been my constant companion –along the various stages of my musical journey. We begin in the Savoie region of France –where I grew up surrounded by mountains –with some true gems of the French repertoire: Saint-Saëns’ The Swan (the first work I played in public), Fauré’s Après un rêve and the Méditation from Massenet’s Thaïs, a particular favourite of my grandmother’s. We conclude the album with new beginnings and some more recent discoveries: the music of Giovanni Sollima, and the virtuoso Encore by my friend Jérôme Ducros. With Intuition, I invite you to accompany me on this journey and to discover the cello landscape through the music that means so much to me.'
