Considered as one of the most gifted pianists of his generation, David Bismuth is hailed by the critics for his playing, both brilliant and profound, a meeting of the art of structure and of poetry of colour. His recordings have been noticed by the media, through the release of several CDs on composers like Franck and Fauré, Debussy and Dukas or again Rachmaninoff and Saint-Saëns (**** in Classica). He also gave Bach pride of place with BACHianas & Transcriptions (ffff in Télérama) and Bach Père et Fils ("Maestro" in Pianiste magazine).
After exemplary musical studies, Lionel Wantelez (cello) was given first prize for virtuosity at the Conservatoire de Genève. He regularly plays in various orchestras such as the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio-France and the Opéra National de Paris.

Fantasiestücke, Op.73 by Robert Schumann
