Music Network presents
Emmanuelle Bertrand and Pascal Amoyel
Celebrated French cellist Emmanuelle Bertrand and acclaimed recitalist Pascal Amoyel have performed together for many years, garnering widespread acclaim from critics and audiences alike and in particular for the “wonderful singing quality” of their playing – the nuanced phrasing of Amoyel the perfect foil for the glowing tones and textures of Bertrand’s cello.
These two artists make a terrific duo, bringing real passion to everything they play. For this concert they will perform a programme of Romantic music by Fauré, Saint-Saëns, Liszt, Brahms and music by Irish composer Kevin Volans.

Winner of a prestigious Victoire de la Musique Classique (a French Grammy) and acclaimed for her technical prowess, ”haunting” lyricism and exquisite tone, Emmanuelle has performed as a soloist with the Flanders Symphony Orchestra, Moscow State Symphony Orchestra and Orchestre Symphonique du Grand Montréal amongst others.
Voted “Solo Instrumental Discovery of the Year” at the Victoires de la Musique in 2005, Pascal has established himself as a pianist of note with an impressive career both as a soloist and a chamber musician, appearing with orchestras throughout Europe, America, Russia, Japan and China.
