Notes and Editorial Reviews



Violinist Renaud Capuçon and his cellist brother Gautier are joined by the young French conductor Lionel Bringuier and the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France for a programme of works by Camille Saint-Saëns.

It includes the lyrical, intimate and rarely heard ‘Duet for Violin, Cello and Orchestra’, La Muse et le Poète. As their many recordings together prove, brothers Renaud and Gautier Capuçon make a superb, closely meshed violin-cello team in the context of both orchestral and chamber music. Their complementary approaches to life and music clearly produce satisfying results when they collaborate; as Renaud has said: “I am more of
Read more a thinker, while Gautier is more instinctive.”
