Nicolas Dautricourt    
PROGRAM: -Robert Schumann : Sonata #2 for violin and piano in D minor -Georges Crumb : "Little pieces of Christmas" for piano -Pascal Zavaro : "Fezzan" for violin -Arvo Part : "Fratres: Passacaille" for violin and piano -Toru Takemitsu : "Hika" for violin and piano -Francis Poulenc : Sonata for violin and piano ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ NICOLAS DAUTRICOURT entered the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris at the age of sixteen and won first prize in violin as well as first prize in chamber music by unanimous consent. After winning several national prizes he took the first grand prize at the Eric Le SageHenri Sauguet International Competition, he won the Parkhouse Award in London, and picked up prizes at international competitions like the Gian Battista Viotti in Vercelli and the Rodolfo Lipizer in Gorizia (both in Italy). ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ERIC LE SAGE is regarded as one of the most original representatives of the French school of piano. A respected performer of Schumanns piano music and of chamber music in general, his curiosity and interest for unknown works has earned him a "catalogue" of more than fifty concertos, from Bach to Jolivet and Gershwin to Hindemith, Schoenberg, Bernstein or Britten. Eric Le Sage has already appeared as a guest artist at many European music festivals, among others La Roque d'Anthéron, Evian, Aix-en-Provence, etc&, and has performed with famous orchestras. Concert tours have taken him to Germany, Italy, Spain, Great Britain, South America, USA, and Japan. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "Nicolas Dautricourt knows how to poke the incandescence or fervor of passionate styles (&) the involvement of the artist is remarkable: a meticulous and very pure violin!" -- Diapason ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "From an instrumental standpoint, it's a treat. Le Sage offers many harmonic nuances by playing off juicy resonances. One may enjoy the creativity of the phrasing, the wealth of colors and the freedom of some sections." -- Le Monde de la Musique
