Event Info

Stéphane Denève conducts Ibéria — with its brilliant colors, clacking of castanets, and the languid beat of a tambourine — and Roussel’s evocative ballet suite in which the god of wine bestows immortality on Ariadne with a kiss and a crown of stars, leading to an intoxicating bacchanal. Gautier Capuçon’s artistry showcases the cello’s rich and expressive range in Prokofiev’s Sinfonia concertante.

Cello

Gautier Capuçon is a true 21st-century ambassador for the cello. Performing internationally with many of the world’s foremost conductors and instrumentalists, he is also founder and leader of the Classe d’Excellence de Violoncelle at the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris. A multiple award winner, he is acclaimed for his expressive musicianship, exuberant virtuosity, and the deep sonority of his 1701 Matteo Goffriller cello “L’Ambassadeur.”

Born in Chambéry, France, Gautier Capuçon began playing the cello at age five. Committed to exploring and expanding the cello repertoire, he performs an extensive array of works each season and regularly premieres new commissions. His current projects include performing the world premiere of Michael Tabachnik’s cello concerto Summer and collaborations with Danny Elfman and Thierry Escaich.

In the 2019–20 season Mr. Capuçon appears with, among others, the philharmonic orchestras of Los Angeles (with Philippe Jordan), Czech Republic (Semyon Bychkov), and Rotterdam (Valery Gergiev); the symphony orchestras of St. Louis (Stephane Denève), Singapore (Vladimir Ashkenazy), and Bavarian Radio (Gianandrea Noseda); and hr-Sinfonieorchester (Alain Altingolu). He tours Europe and the United States with the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestera (Andris Nelsons) and San Francisco Symphony (Michael Tilson Thomas), and is artist-in-residence at Lugano Musica. As a chamber musician, he performs with Yuja Wang, Renaud Capuçon, Frank Braley, Jérôme Ducros, and Leonidas Kavakos.

Recording exclusively for Erato (Warner Classics), Mr. Capuçon has won multiple awards and holds an extensive discography. His latest album, of Schumann works, was recorded live with Martha Argerich, Renaud Capuçon, and the Chamber Orchestra of Europe led by Bernard Haitink. His next album, to be released in December 2019, was recorded with Yuja Wang and features sonatas by Chopin and Franck.
