The feminine side of the cello by cellist Victor Julien-Laferrière and pianist Théo Fouchenneret

On May 5, 2022, cellist Victor Julien-Laferrière and pianist Théo Fouchenneret perform works by Marie Jaëll, Henriette Renié, Nadia Boulanger at the Palazzetto Bru Zane during the concert “The feminine side of the cello” (Violoncello al femminile) for the cycle “The world of César Franck (1822-1890)“.

For a long time, it was considered inappropriate for a woman to play the cello. However, nothing prevented a female composer from writing for the instrument, especially chamber music. Marie Jaëll endeavoured to showcase the talents of the cellist Jules Delsart in her Sonata in A minor of 1881, a year before her Concerto dedicated to the same artist. Henriette Renié wrote hers – very much inspired by César Franck – during the First World War (1916): times had then changed, and it was a woman whom the composer accompanied on the piano. In the meantime, Nadia Boulanger explored the genre with her Trois Pièces, rather than a sonata in three movements (1914).
