Bertrand Chamayou piano
Bertrand Chamayou’s elegant piano playing is paralleled by his quite unique ability to devise a programme.
Schumann Blumenstück Op. 19
Carnaval, 20 scenes mignonnes on 4 notes Op. 9
Ravel Miroirs (Noctuelles, Oiseaux tristes, Une Barque sur l’océan, Alborada del Gracioso, La Vallée des cloches)
Saint-Saëns Etude No. 4 (Les Cloches de Las Palmas, 2e Livre opus 111)
Mazurkas No. 2 Op. 24 & No. 3 Op. 66
Etude en forme de valse No. 6, 1er Livre Op. 52
Absolute discretion in his private life and a level of integrity at the keyboard which others can only aspire to if they want to succeed. But if Bertrand Chamayou is a faithful knight in the service of his works in the noblest sense of the term, he is neither a censor nor a killjoy. His quest for legibility is never dull and his reverence for the score never implies detachment. With Saint-Saëns, you can expect a chivalrous approach, sweat, adrenaline and dazzling risk-taking. Although he believes that music rewards hard work, this does not negate inspiration, and it is primarily out of respect for the listener that he will not share a less than painstakingly perfect performance.
