Biography

Voted ‘Revelation: Solo Instrumentalist of the Year’ at the French Classical Music Awards (Victoires) in 2003, the Franco-Swiss cellist Ophélie Gaillard soon distinguished herself as a versatile musician, performing with equal passion music of the Baroque, Classical, Romantic and Contemporary periods. The winner of several international competitions, notably the J. S. Bach International Cello Competition in Leipzig, she gives recitals in the world’s great concert halls and champions the solo cello repertoire, from Bach’s Suites to works by Britten, Dutilleux, Crumb and the composers of the younger generation.

Her recordings for Ambroisie of Bach’s complete Cello Suites, those of Benjamin Britten and his Cello Sonata with the pianist Vanessa Wagner were highly acclaimed by the international press (Diapason, Le Monde de la Musique, Répertoire, Scherzo, Goldberg, Crescendo …). Her recent recording of Fauré’s works for cello and piano, with Bruno Fontaine, was singled out by The Strad Magazine.

Ophélie Gaillard makes solo appearances with the Orchestre de Cannes- Provence- Alpes Côte d’Azur, the Polish Radio Orchestra (conductor Gabriel Chmura), the Orchestre de Picardie (Edmon Colomer), the European Camerata, the orchestra Les Siècles, the Franz Liszt Orchestra of Budapest. She will be making her début with the New Japan Philarmonic in June 2006.
She appears at various major festivals (such as Saint-Denis, Quimper, Messiaen at La Meige, Orangerie de Sceaux, Sablé-sur-Sarthe, Beaune, Evian, Montreux, Bach in Lausanne, October in Normandy, Reims Flâneries Musicales,Toroella de Montgri) and at theatres including those of Bordeaux, Avignon, Poissy and Paris (Châtelet).

    The album 'Dreams' (Aparté, 2009) should be added to the list of albums. :)
