From the Artist
Worthy successor to Casals or Tortelier, laureate of prestigious awards and prizes, performances with first-class musicians All this is true of Henri Demarquette. Now in his thirties, Henri Demarquettes musical experience began in earnest at the age of 13 when he entered the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris as a student of Philippe Muller. He also took classes with Pierre Fournier and Paul Tortelier. For the past three years he has had a privileged relationship with the violinist Olivier Charlier and the pianist Brigitte Engerer, often performing trios with them.It was through Chopins sonata that their duo became firmly established, and for three years she has been Henri Demarquettes unique partner for this piece. Curious by nature, Henri Demarquette enjoys exploring off the beaten track, and regularly includes contemporary music in his repertoire. He has also worked closely with several composers, including Henri Dutilleux, Jean Françaix, Marcel Landowski, Eric Tanguy, Laurent Petitgirard and Olivier Greif who dedicated his cello concerto to him. This openness to all types of music is reflected in his numerous! and varied recordings, which have won several awards.

Brigitte Engerer and Henri Demarquette give superb readings of these Chopin works, with the cello sonata being the high point. It is such an amazing work; certainly my favourite of Chopin's sonatas and possibly of all his longer works. The writing is so passionate, uniting the two instruments in a superbly sprung dialogue full of rhapsodic transport! Of course there are many brilliant versions but I would choose this one as the most balanced - impassioned, but not wayward. It also focuses on this composer alone which is more revealing, I think, than giving us a mixed recital, especially as everything Chopin wrote for the cello is here. The Polonaise is a superb early work. Demarquette has a beautiful timbre which is matched by the refinement and lustre of Brigitte Engerer's piano.
