Flute and Piano
Raquele Magalhães & Marie-Josèphe Jude
« The two musicians seduce with a duet and a sense of balance of rare perfection, but also with a refinement of every moment. Whether it be delicacy, temperament, colour or virtuosity, everything is of the highest quality.
As for Raquele Magalhaes, gifted with an exceptional sound, she captivates with the poetry of her playing, subtly thwarting the traps of transcription, and combining finesse and intensity with dazzling talent. The disc is dedicated to the memory of Alain Marion: it is obvious that he passed on to his pupil an extraordinary inspiration... »

Raquele Magalhães and Marie-Josèphe Jude have been playing as a duo since 2017, with the aim of recording a disc together. For three years, they have been working together in regular rehearsals and research, thanks to which the label NoMadMusic has given them 'carte blanche' for the recording.
This in-depth work led them to the subject of transcriptions, a practice that was much more widespread in the past, and whose richness deserved to be highlighted again in Flute Transcriptions!

Raquele Magalhães, flute
Paolo Rigutto, piano
Aurélienne Brauner, cello
Composed of Raquele Magalhaes on flute, Aurélienne Brauner on cello and Paolo Rigutto on piano, the Valadon Trio presents a wide repertoire of original works, transcribed works and contemporary creations. The Trio is inspired by the painter Suzanne Valadon (1865-1938), whose artistic career is synonymous with freedom and interdisciplinarity.
Suzanne Valadon is the story of unsuspected riches. Firstly from a humanist point of view, since men and women are equal (she had to show a strong character!). And also from an artistic point of view, revealing her talent, unexpected by the greatest of her peers.
The flute, cello and piano ensemble presents unsuspected richness, even if it may seem rare on the stages, it is a chamber music ensemble that presents great flexibility of repertoires and artistic possibilities. Audiences are won over. And contemporary composers are particularly keen to work with a group that offers them new sound perspectives: the combinations of breaths, bowing and the muffled percussion of hammers constitute a sound palette of infinite and singular richness, like that of a miniature orchestra.
Raquele Magalhaes has been researching and performing works for this chamber music ensemble since 2008. This work reveals a rich repertoire available for all periods. Based on this enthusiastic observation, Aurélienne Brauner, Raquele Magalhaes and Lorène de Ratuld formed the Trio Valadon in 2016. In 2019, Paolo Rigutto joins the Valadon Trio to continue his promising career.
After their successful training at the CNSMD of Paris and Lyon, Raquele, Aurélienne and Paolo have pursued professional careers in chamber music, teaching and orchestration.
Raquele Magalhaes is a soloist and teacher at the CRR and the HEAR in Strasbourg. Cellist, Aurélienne Brauner is soloist, Super-soloist at the Orchestre National de France and teacher at the Pôle d'Enseignement Supérieur de Musique de Bordeaux. Pianist, Paolo Rigutto is also a soloist & teacher in Bordeaux and at the Schola Cantorum.
For its « stage début » at the Festival Atours de notes 2017, the Trio Valadon created Mimitsraïm by Pierre Farago. This work was performed with the participation of the painter Bena and was recorded at its premiere. The Festival Atours de notes 2018 renews its confidence in them for the creation of the musical theatre show: "Scandal! French music in the Belle époque". In January 2021, the American composer Craig Bloomfield has dedicated to them the creation of his work, Mer Hivernale.
The Trio Valadon has successfully performed at the Festivals Atours de notes, the Concerts de Vollore and Musique sur Ciel, at the Moments Musicaux de Chalosse, at the Mai Musical des Coteaux Bordelais, at the Nocturnes de L'aude... During the period of confinement in France, the Trio Valadon has recently made two live recordings on the internet for the Recithall platform and for the Musique aux Logis concert series.

Raquele Magalhães & Étienne Candela
Raquele Magalhães and Etienne Candela met at the CNSM in Paris. They realised that, despite the diversity and extent of the repertoire dedicated to their instruments, with their complementary timbres, they shared the same attraction for popular and traditional music and for the search for unexpected and innovative programmes.
Since their first concerts in 2015, the Magalhães-Candela Duo has built its musical fund around works inspired or influenced by folk music, all of which invite you to travel. They have played for the Saison l'Excell'art, the Saison en streaming Recithall, the Festival Univers Guitare, the Heures Musicales de Gien, the Pierres qui chantent, Les ClisSonnates... Since 2018, their Duo is regularly invited to perform by the Hors Saison or in so many other festivals in the region of Limoges and Sud-Ouest. The Magalhães-Candela Duo has just recorded Piazzolla's Histoire du Tango, with a release of the disc planned for 2022.
