Gramophone Critics’ Choice 2016

Charlotte Gardner, Gramophone 

Haydn, Schubert & Brahms – Music for cello and piano

What a delightful discovery this disk was; and unflashy cover, and 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.

Gramophone Review (February 2016)
“Tétreault’s disc charmed me from the off; from his Haydn Divertimento (originally for the viola da gamba-like baryton), through Schubert’s A minor Arpeggione Sonata and on to the Brahms, this is just pure, lyrical, unadulterated playing of the highest order, with a maturity that belies his 22 years, and matched impeccably by his duo partner, Marie-Ève Scarfone. I can’t wait to hear more from him.”
