Big winner of the season 3 of the Prodigres on France 2 in front of 3.5 million viewers, Marin Chapoutot is only 13 years old a gifted clarinet.
For his first album, the new genius of the clarinet has prepared a cocktail of explosive tubes and great classics: from the adagio of Mozart's Clarinet Concerto to Little Flower by Sidney Bechet and the No. 2 Jazz Waltz Suite by Shostakovich and Gabriel's Oboe from the soundtrack of the film Mission composed by Ennio Morricone.
"In this third season of Prodigies, a young clarinetist is advancing very young on the big stage of the Théâtre du Quai d'Angers. The adagio of Mozart's clarinet concerto begins.
With his instrument almost as big as him and his ample movements, almost choreographed, he captivates the audience!
His attacks are perfect, so Mozartian. His legato is impressive and the whole of his interpretation takes place in a simplicity and a serenity which leave our jury panting.
At the end of his performance, I hear a professional musician from the Pays de la Loire Symphony Orchestra say:
How is it ? there are adults who will never get that sound in all their life.
All is said ! ". MARIANNE JAMES
