Notes and Editorial Reviews

Renaud Capuçon expands his wide-ranging concerto discography with Bartók's two violin concertos. Composed almost three decades apart, they are highly contrasted, inhabiting very different emotional and musical worlds. Partnering Capuçon is the London Symphony Orchestra under its Principal Guest Conductor, François-Xavier Roth.

REVIEW:

The early concerto’s lyrical opening movement finds Renaud Capuçon in his element, producing playing of great warmth and intimacy. Capuçon negotiates Bartok’s very tricky writing with admirable virtuosity throughout. He’s sympathetically accompanied by François-Xavier Roth and the London Symphony Orchestra. Read more />
