'Alvorada' or an invitation to travel with cellist Ophélie Gaillard & her magical cello: a musical tour from Spain to Latin America (Brazil, Argentina, Cuba) featuring, in particular, the composers Villa-Lobos, Granados, Piazzolla & Jobim. In an exceptional mixture of classical pieces & arrangements of the greatest themes of this intense music, the cello sings with the b&oneon, dances with the piano, guitar or percussion, & ab&ons itself in amorous intimacy with the voices.
'Alvorada' immerses us in a sound universe where the feverish energy of the rhythms of this Hispanic & South-American music entrances us & from which a sensual nostalgia responds to a dizzying tango. All the senses are aroused when hearing these spellbinding songs & rhythms.
"Some years ago in Seville, basking in the heat of the afternoon sun & still dazzled by the multi-coloured tiles in the streets of the old city, I was sitting under the majestic trees in the exquisite garden of Casa de Pilatos & began to toy with the idea of one day being able to share the feelings & revelations I had enjoyed in my many journeys through southern parts-both in the course of my frequent tours of Spain but also throughout Latin America. With only my cello for travelling-companion, I visited the four corners of the globe, often playing the Catalan master Gaspar Cassadó's cello sonata, a living metaphor for Spain, his native territory. From the very first note, we are st&ing on the hard-baked earth of &alusia under a burning sun. The silvery olives, gnarled & desiccated though they are, bear wondrous fruit; the scent of the orange trees & jasmine invades our senses so recently wakened from the depths of a stolen siesta as we sit beneath an arbour by a Mozarabic fountain. Cassadó's piece was the inspiration that engendered this recording, albeit in secret, & allowed me to fulfil my deep wish to touch your hearts with the vivid impressions & emotions I experienced in the course of my travels. To share this dream, I needed to surround myself with outst&ing musicians, each one of them alive to all the nuances of their respective art & traditions, deeply-rooted & yet free to go where they pleased & open to every suggestion."
