As a Cal Arts grad and protégé of Fernando Valenti, she has played all the major venues including Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher and Merkin Hall. The New York Times wrote that her performances were “mingled with majesty and introspection.” During a tour in São Paulo, Brazil, where she introduced her “Scarlatti by the Yard” concert series and played Bach’s D minor harpsichord concerto six nights in a row, the Metropolis responded with “….not a stuffed shirt like the others, but a master artist!” A leader in the contemporary harpsichord field, Cadranel expresses her passion through her unique performances, which have included multimedia presentations. While commissioning new works, she also founded and directed “The Los Angeles International Harpsichord Festival,” which received rave reviews from The Los Angeles Times. Cadranel’s first concert performance in Connecticut will feature sonatas for harpsichord by Domenico Scarlatti of Italy and Spaniards Antonio Soler and Isaac Albéniz. A particular highlight will be the double concerto for harpsichord (BMV 1061), written by J.S. Bach and performed by Cadranel and Kroll, and the concluding piece will be “Introduction and Fandango,” by Luigi Boccherini, performed by Cadranel and Zollinger. The JCC’s Vine Auditorium is located at 360 Amity Road, Woodbridge, CT 06525, and the concert will be Sunday, September 29, starting at 3 p.m. Also a free master class is offered at noon the day of the concert.
