Adam Laloum piano
Raphaël Sévère clarinet
Victor Julien-Laferrière cello
Adam Laloum creates worlds of poetry alongside star clarinettist Raphaël Sévère and the brilliant Victor Julien-Laferrière
Three magnificent musicians: Adam Laloum, the visionary poet, Raphaël Sévère, the brilliant virtuoso, and Victor Julien-Laferrière, underlying sensitivity. Stravinsky's 1919 Pieces for clarinet, serene or biting, give way to those of Schumann, whose lyricism is not without vivacity. After Bach's Fifth Suite, the cellists' bible, comes Brahms's Trio Op. 114 and its unforgettable autumn pages, the first of the four works the composer wrote for the clarinet at the end of his life after meeting a particularly inspiring soloist. The three performers communicate their eagerness and enjoyment in playing together in a way few artists can.
