Retrouvez ici tous les articles de presse parlant de Jean-Marc FESSARD


Clarinetist Jean-Marc Fessard is superb, at times producing a burnished auburn tone that’s to die for [track-1, beginning at 01:32]. He receives the magnificent support from conductor Miroslaw Blaszczyk and the Silesian Chamber Orchestra. The latter go on to give a performance of Six Movements…which raises the bar for today’s string ensembles.

…the Polish audio engineers triumph again, giving us immaculately clean, well balanced recordings.

” In such musics are needed persuaded interpreters that import above all the direction of the line and an absolute precision. They are exactly the qualities of the interpreters, Eliane Reyes and Jean-Marc Fessard. It is clear, crystal clear and cheerful interpreted musics with the funny chic which goes to them so well “.

« The three musicians here — clarinetist Jean-Marc Fessard, violinist Frédéric Pélassy, and pianist Eliane Reyes — work excellently together to bring the music to life. Their ensemble work in the Suite is sharply precise. Even in the Sonata and Sonatina, there is a sense that it’s not all just about the violin or clarinet. Pélassy and Fessard allow Reyes to bring out the piano part to show that the works are often more like true duets.. The three musicians also give detailed attention to coloring in a natural, instinctive-sounding way ».

“This programme proposes eight pieces dedicated to Jean-Marc Fessard. It’s difficult to resist to the jubilation blowed by our bass-clarinet player thanks to his flexible, dense and energic playing. Without fail !”

“This is a well produced disc with some excellent playing from all of the musicians involved. I particularly enjoyed Bellocq’s own playing, as well as that of clarinetist Jean-Marc Fessard. Bellocq’s music is worthy of exploration. It presented well in this format, and I look forward to hearing more from this composer.”
