    • Lluís Claret, Sandra Murray en concert au Festival Orford Musique 2024


      This lyrical program with strong French influences features several passages that require great technical mastery. The sonata by composer Théodore Dubois will convey a sense of grandeur and nobility through its rich melodies. Characterized by its fluidity, Debussy’s sonata will take you through an evocative and expressive sonic world. Moreover, each of Casals’ Five Pieces possesses distinct traits, ranging from melancholic gentleness to dynamic energy. This concert will be the perfect opportunity to admire the captivating communication between the cello and the piano!

      The acclaimed musicians taking the stage are all precious partners of the Orford Music Academy.

      REPERTOIRE – French only



      Lluís Claret
      Lluís Claret was born in Andorra to exiled Catalan parents, and his musical journey began there. His inspiration was kindled by his godfather, the renowned cellist Pablo Casals. The family later relocated to Barcelona, where Lluís continued his studies at the Conservatori del Liceu. During this period, he also received private lessons from Enric Casals, Pablo’s brother, who, despite not being a cellist himself, became Lluís’s principal mentor and musical father. His formative years were marked by significant relationships with artists such as Radu Aldulescu, György Sebök, Eva Janzer, Maurice Gendron, and Bernard Greenhouse, which had a profound influence on his musical development.
