Simone Drescher is a musical thoroughbred. She comes into full bloom when performing music. She senses the music with every fibre of her body while also penetrating it intellectually. At the same time the cellist is not only completely familiar with her own musical text but also with that of her chamber music partners. And her interpretations capture the spirit of the compositions she performs on stage with a sure sense of style. Simone Drescher articulates with equal measures of expressiveness and subtle nuance, always accurate and differentiated, always in control. There seems to be no end to her interpretative skill and she masters technical challenges with aplomb and brilliance. She performs with consummate ease and has a stage presence that is riveting.
