Frederic Rosselet (2012)

Bach, Ligeti

Frederic Rosselet

Swiss ‘cellist Frédéric Rosselet plays subtly and athletically.  He is not a performer who shows off at every opportunity; his is a higher aesthetic.  The technical prowess you will hear on this recording rivals the great virtuosi and his recording is on a grand scale.  He uses this skill tastefully and reservedly. Frédéric plays two different 'cellos in this recording. A modern ‘cello, which he plays in the Ligeti, made about 130 years ago by a student of Jean-Baptiste Vuillaume. For the Bach suite, Frédéric chose a glorious instrument configured as they would have been played in the Baroque era, without a peg, a lighter sound post on the interior of the instrument, gut strings and a Baroque bow.

Frédéric took First Place in Bach Solo Strings Competition & Thornton Concerto Competition with the Lutoslawski ‘cello concerto.

Frederic Rosselet

Frédéric plays subtly and athletically.  He is not a showy performer, but his technical prowess rivals the great virtuosi.  He uses this skill tastefully and reservedly.  It makes sense that Frédéric plays with physical ease; he is an athlete himself.  Frédéric was born in Lausanne in 1988 and he describes himself as a “passionate skier.”  Indeed Frédéric skied every weekend in the winter when he was growing up, and his parents taught him to ski when he was two years old.

Producer:

We recorded this album in Alfred Newman Hall on the campus of the University of Southern California thanks to the generosity of Dean Robert Cutietta. Heather Hall helped us with logistics and we are grateful. Jon Fisher loaned us his prized AKG C-24 microphone from Gearworks Pro Audio. This is my favorite microphone for recordings of this intimacy. We chose the Messenger microphone preamp by Elliot Midwood and Hovland microphone cables for these recordings. We ran Yarlung interconnects into our high resolution digital system and into our analog recorder using RMGI 468 tape. Bob Hovland and Len Horowitz designed the analog recorder electronics.
