THE REVIEWS

What a delightful discovery this disk was; and unflashy cover, an a young cellist whose name was completely unknown to me. Yet, after no more than four bars Tétreault had my full attention, so charmed was I by his elegance, lyricism and faithful yet personality filled readings. Beautiful pertnering from Scarfone, too.

Charlotte GardnerGramophone

From the first quiet notes of Haydn’s Divertimento, through Schubert’s Sonata, to the final chords of the Brahms, Tétreault and Scarfone deliver an enthralling performance full of spirited energy and virtuosity.

Robert RowatCBC Music

Stéphane Tétreault is certainly not driven by a superficial juvenile temperament, his performances are emotional and deep as he works out the shifting moods of the works, always perfectly supported by pianist Marie-Eve Scarfone

Remy FranckPizzicato

For his second Analekta album, cellist Stéphane Tétreault along with pianist Marie-Ève Scarfone, celebrate the music of Vienna. Their performance transports us from the grace of a Haydn divertimento to Schubert’s divine “Arpeggione”, to say nothing of the depth of Brahms’ Cello Sonata No.1. Nothing less than sublime!
