From the Nice Matin, Cannes Edition, August 31, 2010--

Violinist Ambroise Aubrun delighted the Cercle musical (Cannes)

 “An exciting stimulus, a healthy competition between young musicians from all over the world, many joyful friendships created by music, an extraordinary atmosphere for working … and we work so hard and with so much pleasure that there is no time to succumb to the song of tempting sirens!”

Ambroise Aubrun, back home in Nice for the holidays, speaks with enthusiasm of his studies at the prestigious university of Los Angeles (UCLA). The young violinist, invited for a concert by the Cercle Musical de Cannes, which has supported him since his first recital, filled the hall of the Hotel Majestic-Barrière on Sunday. The program, established with his partner, the excellent pianist Emmanuelle Cechetti, is the fruit of this “work” he is talking about. It’s an understatement to say that he enchanted the numerous public.

He does so without making a big show. He has a poet’s gentleness and a young magician’s virtuosity. He has marvellous ease, a suppleness and beauty of sound that he creates with his Matteo Goffriler violin, lent by the Fondation Langart.

In Fauré, Bartok, Tchaikowski, Saint-Saens, Brahms, his sensitive bow enhances the delicacy of the colors and the contrasts, with a marked taste for a tune that sings. Ambroise Aubrum will be playing as soloist in the next concert of the UCLA orchestra
