Muralto Musika




“Classical” musician but at the same time deeply involved in the musical creation of her time, Marie Ythier is one of the most intriguing cellists of the French music scene.
Disciple of Anne Gastinel, Miklos Perenyi, Philippe Muller, and Heinrich Schiff, she won several international awards and is regularly attending the most prestigious European and American theatres (KKL Lucerne, Philharmonie de Paris, etc.).
She worked with composers like Gilbert Amy, Tristan Murail, and Pierre Boulez.
In a duo with the pianist Raffaella Damaschi, who already worked with artists like Alessandro Carbonare, Lorenza Borrani, Dimitri Ashkenazy, etc., Marie presents a wonderful overview of the collection for cello and piano.
We will enjoy Fünf Stücke in Volkstone by Robert Schumann, a cycle that “charms with its freshness and originality”, to then skip to op. 11 by Anton Webern and the rare Sonata op. 109 by Gabriel Fauré, defined at its premiere as a “new masterpiece”. C'est un jardin secret, ma sœur, ma fiancée, une fontaine close, une source scellé for cello is just a short work by Tristan Murail dated 1976, where shape is generated through a play on transforming different kinds of sound.
The concert will be closed by the famous exuberant and joyful Sonata op. 58 by Felix Mendelssohn.
