About

From Romance to Romancero, the cellist Ophélie Gaillard invites us to an imaginary journey, both heroic and delicate, in the world of Richard Strauss, the post-Romantic composer par excellence.

Vibrant heart of the disc, the symphonic poem Don Quixote transforms the instruments into characters who play the epic adventures of Cervantes’ hero. Thus, Don Quixote, played by the cello, talks with Sancho Panza (the viola) or Dulcinea (the violin) in a luxuriant orchestral fresco, tender and sensual, where Strauss’s genius for melody unfolds with a touch of humour.

His exquisite expressiveness shines through the most intimate pieces that complete this program. Ophélie Gaillard’s warm lyricism agrees with the piano in the Romance and the Sonata in F major, or with the voice in the smooth accents of Morgen. As an ideal companion, the cellist's enchanting bow leads to an irresistible music.
