When Stéphane Tétreault and Marie-Ève Scarfone take the stage together, vigour and tenderness unite in an expressive performance which lends renewed sincerity to the works of Haydn, Schubert & Brahms. This cello and piano pairing establishes a spellbinding atmosphere sure to captivate every listener.
Stéphane Tétreault’s playing has been called “astonishingly mature not merely in its technical attributes but also in its warmth, brilliance and subtlety of colour and inflection” by Gramophone Magazine. In 2022, he was awarded the Prix Opus for Performer of the Year from the Conseil québécois de la musique. “Recognized as one of the most versatile pianists of her generation” (MyScena), Marie-Ève Scarfone has performed throughout North America, in Europe, Asia and the Middle East. Scarfone has been honoured with the top piano prize at the Marilyn Horne Foundation Song Competition as well as the Sir Ernest MacMillan Memorial Foundation Award.
Their fusion of cello and piano is layered with complexity and nuance, performed with an intensity which pulls the listener in. The contained chemistry of the Tétreault-Scarfone Duo transcends the ordinary to venture into the sublime.
