World Classical Music Series | Sandrine Catoreggi and Sheila Arnold
Sandrine Cantoreggi,& Sheila Arnold, Violin and piano exposed and uncovered in an emotional dialogue from Mozart to Chopin and Saint-Saëns Sandrine Cantoreggi, can not imagine life without music. It is through her violin that she focuses her emotions and thoughts. Her mode of communication is the sound of the violin. Born in Bordeaux, Sandrine Cantoreggi started at the Conservatoire de Musique de Luxembourg and was admitted to the National Conservatory of Music and Dance in Paris at the age of 14.
Yehudi Menuhin, who had noticed her during competitions, asked to meet her and support her in different projects. Her taste developed for a highly expressive and authentic interpretation was confirmed by the master. A recording made in 1991 bears witness to their unfortunately too brief collaboration.
Among the musical personalities with whom she shared the stage are Yehudi Menuhin, Vladimir Spivakov, Yuri Bashmet, Georges Octors, Jan Stulen, Stephane Denève, Pierre Cao, Bruno Canino, Daniel Blumenthal, Dana Ciocarlie, Gustav Rivinius, Connie Shih. Tours lead her to perform in the United States, England, Georgia and Japan and she performed on prestigious European stages such as the Salle Gaveau and the Orsay Museum (Paris), the Gewandhaus (Leipzig), the Rudolfinum (Prague), the Flagey Studio and the Monnaie (Brussels), and the Luxembourg Philharmonic. Sandrine Cantoreggi has recorded chamber music and concertos by Haydn, Mozart, Locatelli, Onslow, Respighi, Lalo, Ravel, Enescu, Ropartz and Ysaye for the Turtle Records, Pavane, Ligia and Kalidisc labels.
His Royal Highness Grand Duke Henri of Luxembourg awarded her the order of civil and military merit of Adolphe de Nassau and raised her to the rank of knight in the field of sciences and arts.
