About

Henri Tomasi’s violin works are little known but they offer a compact insight into the direction of French 20th-century composition. The Violin Concerto ‘Périple d’Ulysse’ is a late work, by turns alluring, tragic and violent, conveyed through rhapsodic virtuosity and a rich sense of colour. The Capriccio is full of elegance and refinement with emotional intensity in its slow movement and brilliance in its finale. Chant hébraïque conjures up oriental motifs while the sequence of early works for violin and piano reference Tomasi’s Corsican heritage and evoke quasi-cinematic exoticism.

Violinist Stéphanie Morally began studies at the Paris Conservatoire at 16, and was awarded a Premier Prix at the age of 19. She currently performs as part of Duo Moraly-David with pianist Romain David, and is also first violin of the Quintette Syntonia.

Pianist Romain David has won awards at numerous prestigious international competitions including the Honens International Piano Competition (Calgary, 2003), Villa-Lobos International Piano Competition (São Paulo, 2006, presided over by Nelson Freire) and the European Piano Contest Bremen (2007).
