Stratford Summer Music


Stéphane Tétreault

At 26 years of age, Stéphane Tétreault has been travelling the world since his first visit to Stratford, two summers ago …and the world has been taking notice of the extraordinary sensitivity of his interpretations and the consummate quality of the music he creates with his travelling companion, the 1707 Stradivarius cello named the Countess von Stainlein.  The cello, once owned by the great master of this instrument, Nicolo Paganini, was purchased for Stéphane by the late Jacqueline Desmarais of Montreal so that he might have an acclaimed instrument equal to his talent; Mme Desmarais’ decision made international headlines, and Stéphane’s performances with the Countess have already proven how worthy he is to have such a grand friend in his appearances.

The complete package: quality of talent, dedicated to his craft, a beautiful sound, a warmth of personality….. audiences delight in his company. – John Miller, Founder and Artistic Director Emeritus                

Stéphane will be performing solo at the Musical Brunch at the Prune Restaurant on Saturday, July 20th. As well, on Sunday, July 21st, he will be joining Mark Fewer and Stephen Prutsman for an afternoon of chamber music at the Avondale.
