About

Winner of the of the 2005 German Music Competition, the 2005 Stuttgart International Cello Competition and the 2006 Adam International Cello Competition, New Zealand, as well as being the recipient of a 2009 Borletti Buitoni Fellowship, Nicolas Alstaedt here presents the complete cello music of Gabriel Pierné and Vincent D’Indy, two composers noted for the elegance and superb craftsmanship of their music.

Pierné’s Cello Sonata was much influenced by the music of César Franck, while d’Indy shows a fondness for old French dance forms.

A student of Fauré, Nadia Boulanger made a particularly lasting impression as a teacher, exerting strong influence notably over a generation of American composers. Her Three Pieces move from gentle meditation to wild dance.
