The Ensemble Mendelssohn

Pierre Feraux piano
Daniel Rubenstein violin
Elisabeth Wybou violin
Mate Szücs viola
Igal Braslavsky viola
Nicolas Deletaille cello
Catherine Lebrun cello

Established in April 2002, the Mendelssohn Ensemble is composed of young musicians based in Belgium, each having finished their studies with the highest Honors in Belgian and foreign institutions such as the Royal Conservatory of Brussels, the Queen Elisabeth of Belgium College of Music, the Royal College of Music (London), the Juilliard School (New York) or the Indiana University (Bloomington-USA).

The members of the Mendelssohn Ensemble are Concertmaster of chamber orchestra, Viola-solo of symphonic orchestra, occupying teaching positions in various establishments such as Royal Music Conservatories (Belgium) or Eastern Mediterranean University (Cyprus), First Prizes and prize winners of national and international competitions, and prize winners of the National Competition of Music Axion Classics (Dexia). The Mendelssohn Ensemble also receives support from the Foundation Carlo Van Neste.

Each musician is active in the field of chamber music. One can find their names in festivals and concerts venues in most European countries as well as in Brazil, Korea, Israel, Japan and United States, for radio and television, as soloists (with most of the principal orchestras of Belgium) and in chamber music with other international artists.

The Mendelssohn Ensemble's repertoire centres around the string quintet and sextet literature with or without piano. Besides masterpieces and famous works of the repertory, the Mendelssohn Ensemble also performs works rarely played and collaborates with composers in order to promote these forms of chamber music in today's music.

The Mendelssohn Ensemble has released a CD published by Contréclisse with Tchaïkovsky's String Sextet Souvenir of Florence, Dvorak's first Piano Quintet opus 5 and a World Premiere, the 3 Croquis for string quintet of Belgian composer Michel Lysight. They also gave the World Premiere of Hexagramme by Michel Lysight (String Sextet version) as well as the Souvenir du Présent by Kris Oelbrandt. Other premieres are scheduled for next season, particularly for piano quintet.

The musicians playing on this CD are:

Pierre Feraux, piano
Daniel Rubenstein, violin
Elsa de Lacerda, violin
Mate Szücs, viola
Sarah Charlier, viola
Nicolas Deletaille, cello
Renaat Ackaert, cello

Depuis avril 2002, l'Ensemble Mendelssohn réunit en Belgique une pléiade de jeunes musiciens ayant accompli leur formation musicale dans des écoles de renom telles que le Conservatoire Royal de Bruxelles, la Chapelle Musicale Reine Elisabeth de Belgique, le Royal College of Music (Londres), la Juilliard School (New York) ou l'Indiana University (Bloomington-USA).

Les membres de l'Ensemble Mendelssohn se sont distingués comme solistes en remportant les premiers prix de concours internationaux et nationaux. Certains d'entre eux sont actuellement concertmaster d'orchestre de chambre, alto-solo d'orchestre symphonique ou occupent une charge d'enseignement dans des institutions de premier plan (Conservatoire royaux en Belgique, Eastern Mediterranean University à Chypre). La Fondation Carlo Van Neste a choisi d'offrir son soutien à l'Ensemble Mendelssohn.

Les musiciens de l'ensemble dédient tous une importante part de leur activité à la musique de chambre. Leur nom apparaît régulièrement à l'affiche de festivals et de saisons de concerts dans la plupart des pays d'Europe ainsi qu'au Brésil, en Corée, aux Etats-Unis, en Israël et au Japon. Certains de ces concerts, au cours desquels ils apparaissaient en tant que solistes ou en compagnie d'artistes de réputation internationale, ont bénéficié d'une captation radiophonique ou télévisée.

Le répertoire de l'Ensemble Mendelssohn est axé sur la littérature pour quintettes à clavier, quintette à cordes et sextuors à cordes. Outre les chef-d'œuvres du genre, l'Ensemble Mendelssohn aime également faire découvrir des oeuvres rarement jouées et collabore volontiers avec des compositeurs afin de promouvoir ces formations spécifiques de musique de chambre dans la musique de notre temps.

L'Ensemble Mendelssohn a sorti un premier CD paru chez Contréclisse avec le sextuor à cordes "Souvenir de Florence" de Tchaïkovsky, le quintette à clavier opus 5 de Dvorak et "3 Croquis" pour quintette à cordes (en première mondiale) de Michel Lysight.

Les musiciens jouant sur ce CD sont:

Pierre Feraux, piano
Daniel Rubenstein, violon
Elsa de Lacerda, violon
Mate Szücs, alto
Sarah Charlier, alto
Nicolas Deletaille, violoncelle
Renaat Ackaert, violoncelle
