The art of Mendelssohn, the Mozart of the 19th century according to Schumann’s perspicacious yet deceptive expression, stubbornly eludes categorisation. Its lightness, transparency and elegance combine classicism and romanticism; together with the previous elements, its fervour, drama and exaltation define a remarkably rich, multi-faceted body of work. 

The two piano concertos Mendelssohn composed when he reached his artistic maturity (at the age of 16, with the impressive String Octet op. 20) are less frequently played nowadays than those of Chopin, even if they are, in many respects, probably superior
Pianist Christian Chamorel, born in Lausanne in 1979, is remarkable for the diversity of his repertoire and his exacting artistic approach. 

He has been invited to play at major festivals, including the Beethoven Festival of Chicago, the Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and Klavierfestival Ruhr in Germany, as well as French festivals such as Les Musicales du Golfe, Lisztomanias and Festival de Musique de Menton. His performances include concerts at the Musashino Hall, Tokyo, the Konzerthaus in Berlin, Munich’s Prinzregententheater, the Tonhalle in Zurich, the Wigmore Hall in London and the Victoria Hall in Geneva. He plays with orchestras including the Orchestre de Chambre Fribourgeois, the Berner Symphonieorchester, the Berliner Camerata, the Camerata de Lausanne and the Sinfonietta de Genève, among many others.
