Graduate of the National Conservatoire of Paris (CNSM) and the MusikHochschule of Cologne, holding a cello CA, Pauline Bartissol is an eclectic cellist whose musical life reflects her curiosity and will to share with other artists. 2nd Cello Solo at the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio-France since 2007, she is also a teacher assistant to Marc Coppey at the National Conservatoire of Paris (CNSM) since September 2013 and regularly plays chamber music in reknowned festivals (Quincena Musicale de San Sebastian, Bilbao and Vitoria Festival, Juventus Festival, Heures musicales du musée d’Orsay, Return Festival of Erevan…).More surprisingly, she sometimes appears in more unexpected repertoire such as the duo formed with the saxophonist Jean-Charles Richard or as part of the feminin trio Salzedo she created in 2015 with the flutist Marine Pérez and the harpist Frédérique Cambreling. The Salzedo trio is a singular chamber music ensemble setting itself apart with diversified projects and repertoires.
What if we took Arnold Schoenberg for his word? ‘The transfigured night’ was inspired by Richard Dehmel’s poem. Wouldn’t it be more spectacular if we only had our ears to receive its beauty? After the poem being read in darkness, the audience would hear Schoenberg’s masterpiece in its sextet string version in the shade. This setting would allow the audience to experience the piece in a new way. A light projection will display dark colours to recreate a night atmosphere. The musicians will exist through their voice and the sound of their instruments. This experiment has never been made before because the six musicians will have to play by heart, with no partition or music stand. ‘The transfigured night’ was created between Germanic Romantism of the XIXth century’s and the modernism Shonenberg and its two disciples Berg and Webern established. Interpreted by Ana Millet, Juliette Salmona, Corentin Bordelot, David Haroutunian, Pauline Bartissol, Sarah Chanaf. Reading by Simon Abkarian.
