CONNESSON Lucifer Ballet, Cello Concerto

“Connesson is a professional to his fingertips, and should you warm to the work of the classier commerical composers and orchestrators you may find his world wholly congenial...There's no doubting the enormous effectiveness of the ballet music in particular... The Monte Carlo forces are galvanised by Jean-Christophe Spinosi into playing of fire and energy...” --Gramophone Magazine, January 2015

Orchestre Philharmonique de Monte-Carlo, Jean Christophe Spinosi

Enfant terrible of classical music, conductor Jean-Christophe Spinosi puts his talent to the service of music by the young French composer Guillaume Connesson. Who better than Jean-Christophe Spinosi, a true choreographer-musician endowed with a rhythmic beat and an extraordinary physical exaltation, could conduct the mad ballet, Lucifer?

At his side, cellist Jérôme Pernoo works wonders in the breathtaking Cello Concerto, which is dedicated to him.
