LAETITIA HIMO, "FROM PARIS TO MOSCOW"

THURSDAY, MAY 4TH  AT 8.30PM

AUDITORIUM OF THE MUSIC CONSERVATORY OF TEL-AVIV

MARSHALL ST. 22, TEL-AVIV

 

Both French and international media present her as the “highly talented revelation of French cello”. Jean-Claude Casadesus says about her that “she is a sensitive, refined and intense musician expressing herself on her cello with the most accurate style”.

Trained at the most prestigious international music academies (Moscow conservatory and the Julliard School in New-York), Laetitia Himo performs around the world, invited by remarkable conductors (Jean-Claude Casadesus, Claudio Simone, Angel Romero, Vladimir Spivakov, Alexandre Roudine), or national orchestras of Mexico, Costa Rica, Venezuela, or the Berlin philharmonic orchestra.

Born in France, before moving to Moscow in order to perfect her skills with great masters such as Mstislav Rostropovitch or Nathalia Gutmann, Laetitia Himo, in this exceptional concert “From Paris to Moscow” retraces her personal and professional background through performing great classic pieces of French and Russian composers. Alternately gentle and solemn with Fauré’s Elegies, Nocturnal from Tchaikovsky or the Swan from Saint-Saens, as well as more passionate and fiery with Monti or De Fala, all the elected pieces bring us away to the discovery of magisterial compositions, interpreted with brio and sensitivity by Laetitia Himo.

Nathalie Gutman : A delicate interpretation of a genuine nature and a strong emotional power».

Vladimir Spivakov, violoniste : “Laetitia Himo has a wonderful tone, a dazzling nature and a real artistic style».

Joseph W. Polisi, Président de la Juilliard school de New York: «If you enjoy cello and if you like sheer talent, listen to Laetitia Himo».

Frederic Lodeon, France Inter: «Laetitia Himo is an inspired cellist offering a delicate and powerful tone with a fierce dynamism. Expression and inner nature serve an assertive personality and an exceptional talent».
