Stéphane Tétreault's playing - he is technically commanding yet musically stylistic and sensitive. His vibrato and tone are varied, his bowing techniques immaticulate and his awareness of harmony and consequent shading omnipresent (...) the ubiquitous Swan is given a sumptuously refined performance and the Allegro appassionato is full of verve.

From the very first bars of Saint-Saëns’s First Cello Concerto you sense that this disc is going to be exhilarating and rewarding. The solo playing is astonishingly mature not merely in its technical attributes but also in its warmth, brilliance and subtlety of colour and inflection, so it comes as a shock to realise that Stéphane Tétreault is 19 years old. His is a name to watch.
