Second CD of Duo Fortecello

World Tour in Music for Cello and Piano opus 2

About the project

Dear Friends!

After the success of our first CD, also financed thanks to our fans by Ulule, we propose you to participate in this crowdfunding of our second album!

We will be recording 8 fantastic pieces from Poland, France, Spain of course and also from Serbia, Romania, Armenia, Russia and Argentina. Three of them will be world premiere recordings!

This time we are very lucky and grateful : first of all, the Chauvigny Theatre, nearby Poitiers, accepted to receive us for 4 days of recording for free. This beautiful hall will give to our CD a beautiful natural sound! And secondly, the KNS Classical Label accepted us in their luxury family of artists and will release this album!

What are the funds for?

Your donations will help us to finance the recording costs (sound engineer), graphic design, cd production and… taxes!

Every donation is important, there is no little help! We have one month to collect 5000€ that are less than a half of the full cost.
We asked for support from ADAMI, a French society of artists supporting, for 2770€.
We will add the rest, 2730€ to rise the total 10500€.

Thank you all in advance!

About the project owner

“Cello and piano World Tour”

The Polish cellist Anna Mikulska and the French-Spanish pianist Philippe Argenty wish to gather the music of their roots and their respective sensibilities in a program that will make you travel from Armenia to South America, but also from Eastern Europe to Spain and Paris… This second musical world tour offered by the Duo Fortecello is breathtaking of diversity and virtuosity. The show is performed by two musicians, whose experiences through the most prestigious European Institutions brought them a cosmopolite and universal vision of the music.

To resume, the main goal of Duo Fortecello is to reconcile the largest audience with classical music, to make it live again and to propose concerts that are light, colorful and joyful.

This young duo has already performed in France, Spain, Italy, Czech Republic, Hungary and Norway during last three years and will be invited in Germany, Poland, Belgium, Austria and other places in 2017.

Duo Fortecello’s first album was released in 2015, tracing the first Opus of “Cello and piano World Tour” and the second one will appear in 2018.

The press reports:

La Nouvelle République - Lencoître 30/07/2014

A nice piano-cello duet, recently installed in Vouglaisien, the French-Spanish Philippe Argenty has succeeded locally, organizing several concerts and festivals. On Tuesday night, thanks to the municipality and the celebration committee support, he has played in Notre-Dame de Lencoître’s church. In duo with the cellist of Polish origin Anna Mikulska, he has presented a very eclectic program named “Music World Tour”. In duo or in solo, the two musicians have performed for instance some Spanish cultural plays (Requiebros of Gaspar Cassado, Tango of Astor Piazzolla) or others from the Slavic Culture (Mazurka of Emil Mlynarski, Hungarian Rhapsody of David Popper) and have received warm applauses from the music-lovers experts.

L’Indépendant, 24/08/2014

“This musical world tour is breathtaking of diversity and virtuosity. These two young interpreters have rich and experimented careers. Through their performances they transmit a universal and cosmopolite vision of music, it is a delight listening to them but also meeting them”.
