Estelle Revaz



Estelle has played in many countries across Europe, Asia, Africa and South America. She has been invited to play at festivals such as the Verbier Festival, the Gstaad Menuhin Festival, the Sion Festival, the Festival International de Colmar or the Festival Pablo Casals alongside musical partners such as Gautier Capuçon, Pierre Génisson, Gaspard Dehaene, François Dumont, François Killian, Cédric Pescia, Alexandra Conunova, Raphaëlle Moreau, Tai Murray, Lena Neudauer, Sergey Ostrovsky or the Quatuor Sine Nomine among many more. She has performed at venues including the Victoria Hall, the Fondation Gianadda, the Musée du Louvre, the NCPA in Beijing, the Oriental Art Center in Shanghai, the CCK in Buenos Aires or the Sodre in Montevideo.

Her orchestral repertoire ranges from the C.P.E Bach concertos to those of Gulda and Ligeti. From the 2017-2018 season for a period of three years, Estelle Revaz will be the artist in residence of the Orchestre de Chambre de Genève, conducted by Arie van Beek. Her many projects include an album centred around the concertos by F. Martin and a world premiere by X. Dayer.

In CANTIQUE (NEOS, 2015), her first release, she performs as soloist in the concertos of E. Bloch (Schelomo) and A. Pflüger (Pitture, wold premiere) – an album enthusiastically received by critics. As Le Temps emphasises « CANTIQUE is a serious, incisive and demanding disc where the orchestra and the soloist play with finesse and intelligence in a beautiful musical symbiosis ». Her album Bach & Friends (Solo Musica/Sony 2017) for solo cello was also greeted with great excitement by the specialist classical music press, with Pizzicato writing: « Estelle Revaz presents a demanding programme that she interprets at a very high technical level. The sound is perfectly pure, the phrasing is extremely clear and the dynamics are exceptionally refined. ». Following her most recent album, recorded as a duo and entitled Fugato (Solo Musica/Sony 2017), Le Courrier described Estelle Revaz as « one of the rising stars of a new generation of great artists », while La Liberté spoke of her « majestic programme in which the cello sings magnificently, at times powerful or languid ».

Radio and television appearances include national radio stations in France, Belgium, Germany and Switzerland, several visits to the news programs. More recently, Estelle coproduced a five-part radio program called « Estelle et le violoncelle » for Swiss radio Espace 2/Radio Télévision Suisse. After starting out in Switzerland, Revaz studied in France at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris (Jérôme Pernoo), and in Germany at the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz Köln (Maria Kliegel).
