la sortie du disque
l'intégrales des Suites!

Marianne vient de terminer un projet sur les Suites de Bach et le violoncelle baroque. Ce projet comprend
un mémoire sur l'origine du violoncelle, sa technique et son évolution, ainsi qu'un enregistrement de l'intégrale des Suites basé sur une nouvelle édition Urtext réalisée par Marianne pendant le projet.

Ce Projet a pour but d'apporter de nombreuses réponses concernant le violoncelle baroque, son répertoire, sa lutherie et sa technique.

Baroque cello & Bach Cello Suites : Reversing the bowing technique

"Some move the bow as is customary on the viola da gamba, that is, instead of a down-stroke from left to right for the principal notes, they make an up-stroke from right to left, beginning from the tip of the bow." J. J. Quantz about cellists, Berlin, 1752 excerpt from "The art of playing the flute". My idea with this project was of course not to say "this is "the" way", but to explore a technique also used during the baroque period. It convinced me and gave me a deeper understanding of the instrument and the mechanic of the sound of the cello, the vibration of the strings etc. There is still a lot more to explore, but this is my contribution on the topic. Read more: The recording will be soon available for download on itunes etc. , and also on streaming platforms like spotify, IDAGIO , under the label Urania records & Manzoni Editore
