ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In a world that seems more and more complex it is important, and a privilege, to be able to come back to music that expresses the most important ideals of what being human is all about -BACH

There is a purifying quality about these Six Suites composed by J.S. Bach and they are so dear to music lovers that CD Baby has even proposed them played on the Trumpet as well as ukulele or Marimba. Here is perhaps the most pure and original version for the cello, played on a wonderous cello made by Amati in 1619 and played by the Belgian cellist Nicolas Deletaille. Especially important is the monumental Sixth Suite with its five-stringed cello expressing every sound coulour from soul and heart for ears and heart.....

This CD is issued by the label Contréclisse (CEX 2005 CD)

BIOGRAPHY:

After having received his musical education in Belgium and in the USA, Nicolas Deletaille has begun his professional life as a concert performer. In the same time, he has recorded musical works from the standard repertoire such as the Bach six cello solo suites, the Beethoven five sonatas for cello and piano, the Kodaly cello solo sonata and chamber music works by Schubert, Dvorak, Franck and Tchaikovsky as well as works written by today composers.

Nicolas Deletaille has also earned distinction as an arpeggione player by recording the Schubert arpeggione sonata in the rare original arpeggione version with the vienese maestro Paul Badura-Skoda on an original 1820 pianoforte.

Nicolas Deletaille has collaborated extensively with composers of our time. He has given approximately 50 world premiere creations, most of which were pieces written for him by composers from Belgium, France, Taiwan, USA, Italy, England, Switzerland, Korea, Norway and Canada. The last composition written for him is "Dépli et Configurations de l'Ombre" for solo arpeggione by Henri Pousseur.

Nicolas Deletaille is currently a faculty member of the Eastern Mediterranean University. He is cellist of the Mendelssohn Ensemble and plays as a duo with the French pianist Jean-Michel Dayez.

Biographie

Issu de la Chapelle Musicale Reine Elisabeth de Belgique et de la Juilliard School à New York, Nicolas Deletaille se produit actuellement sur les scènes européennes, tant en qualité de soliste que de chambriste. Il est d'autre part professeur de violoncelle à l'Eastern Mediterranean University (RTCN).

Sa discographie comprend l'intégrale des six suites pour violoncelle seul de Bach et des cinq sonates pour violoncelle et piano de Beethoven, ainsi que diverses oeuvres majeures du répertoire pour violoncelle seul (Kodaly, Ysaÿe, Ligeti, Cassado) et de musique de chambre (Schubert, Dvorak, Franck, Tchaikovsky...).

Parallèlement à son activité de violoncelliste, Nicolas Deletaille s'est également fait connaître comme « arpeggioniste » en interprétant dans la version originale la célèbre « Sonate Arpeggione » de Schubert qu'il a par ailleurs enregistrée pour Fuga Libera en compagnie du maître viennois Paul Badura-Skoda.

Dans le domaine de la musique contemporaine, Nicolas Deletaille a donné plus de cinquante créations mondiales d'oeuvres écrites le plus souvent à son intention. Il a également suscité de nombreuses nouvelles oeuvres pour l'arpeggione.

Nicolas Deletaille est membre de l'Ensemble Mendelssohn et forme un duo avec le pianiste français Jean-Michel Dayez.
------------------

Nicolas DELETAILLE solo ve oda müziği repertuvarı çok geniş olan bir viyolonselcidir. Konser çalışmalarının yanı sıra Kuzey Kıbrıs Türk Cumhuriyeti Doğu Akdeniz Üniversitesinde öğretim görevlisi olarak çalışmaktadır. Bugüne kadar Bach’ın 6 Solo Viyolonsel Süitini, Beethoven’in 5 Sonatını, Schubert, Dvorak, Franck ve Tchaikovsky’nin eserlerini kayıt etmiştir.

Nicolas Deletaille viyolonsel çalmaya 1983’de henüz 4 yaşındayken başladı. Eğitimini Belçika (1993-2001) ve ABD’de (2001-2003) tamamladıktan sonra, 2003’de efsanevi ipekyolu ile ilgili bir kültürel proje kapsamında üç ay boyunca Türkiye ve İran’ı Quintus fiber karbon viyolonseliyle dolaşarak konserler verdi. 2004 yılından beridir Avrupa’da konserler vermekte ve kayıtlar yapmaktadır. Eylül 2006’da eşi ve iki çocuğuyla Gazimağusaya yerleşen Deletaille, Doğu Akdeniz Üniversitesinde Müzik Bölümü ve Müzik Öğretmenliği Programında viyolonsel dersleri vermektedir.

Viyolonsel sanatçısı olarak yaptığı çalışmaların yanı sıra Deletaille aynı zamanda bir ‘arpeggione’ sanatçısı olarak da büyük ün kazanmıştır. Bir taraftan bu ender rastlanan çalgı ile Schubert’in ünlü Arpeggione Sonatı’nı icra ederken (CD kaydını 2008’de Fuga Libera firmasıyla fortepiyanoda ünlü piyanist Paul Badura-Skoda ile yapmışlardır), diğer taraftan da bu özel çalgı için yeni eserlerin yazılmasına öncülük etmektedir.

Deletaille günümüz bestecileriyle yakın işbirliği içerisindedir. Bugüne kadar, Belçika, Fransa, Tayvan, ABD, İtalya, İngiltere, İsviçre, Kore, Norveç ve Kanadalı bestecilerin çoğunlukla kendisi için yazdığı 50 kadar eserin dünya prömiyerlerini gerçekleştirmiştir. Onun için yazılan en son eser solo arpeggione için Henri Pousseur’ün ‘Dépli et Configurations de l’Ombre’ adlı eseridir.

Già allievo della Chapelle Musicale Reine Elisabeth di Bruxelles e della Juilliard School di New York, Nicolas Deletaille si esibisce attualmente in diversi teatri d'Europa, sia come solista che come musicista da camera. E' inoltre titolare della cattedra di violoncello presso l'Eastern Mediterranean University (RTCN).

Oltre che come violoncellista, Nicolas Deletaille si è fatto un nome anche come "arpeggionista", da un lato interpretando la celebre "Sonata Arpeggione" di Schubert sullo strumento per il quale essa è stata originariamente scritta, e dall'altro suscitando un nuovo repertorio per questo strumento raro.

Nell'ambito della musica contemporanea, Nicolas Deletaille ha interpretato, in prima esecuzione assoluta, più di quaranta opere, per lo più a lui dedicate. L'ultima composizione scritta per lui è « Dépli et Configurations de l'Ombre » per arpeggione solo, di Henri Pousseur.

Dr. Nikos Salingaros

A GREAT YOUNG CELLIST FOR OUR TIMES
There is something profoundly correct about Deletaille's playing -- emotional intensity, virtuosity, and perfection without ever becoming either mechanical or introverted. Total concentration in the service of the music itself and the composer. You do have to be careful in these days of self-indulgent virtuosos, or even worse, those "modern" interpretations that sap all the life out of the notes in a misguided attempt at "virtuosic impartiality". None of that here -- it's just a pure pleasure to hear someone playing for the sheer joy of playing!

Deletaille's Bach CD came out in 2006, and his Beethoven CD, accompanied by the excellent pianist Jean-Michel Dayez, in 2007. The Bach suites I rate with the best ever interpreters: Casals, Rostropovich, Fournier, etc. His Beethoven sonatas are exquisite, again ranking with the classic recordings by Casals/Serkin, Rostropovich/Richter, and Fournier/Gulda.

The only quibble I have is that the great Fugue that concludes Sonata No. 5 (Opus 102 No. 2) is not as deliberately paced as the interpretation of Fournier/Gulda, presented in this new recording as a very different though equally correct interpretation. But Deletaille/Dayez make it work within the context of their own vision of the whole sonata.

Still, I would consider this a compliment rather than a criticism to be compared to Pierre Fournier and Friedrich Gulda. Deletaille's Bach is fast-paced, but does not sound fast. Incredible virtuosity that presents the music at a speed that seems just right. Only when I compared his timings to other favorite recordings I realized that this is a great technical feat. Note that Deletaille uses a "Violoncello Piccolo" built in Belgium in 2002 for the Sixth suite -- attention to the music and the composer's intentions (which are here unclear!). Bach's Sixth suite is always a problem to perform since Bach did not write it for a normal cello.
