Notes and Editorial Reviews

Intuition, a captivating album of short pieces for solo cello with piano or orchestra, has been conceived by Gautier Capuçon to "reflect the story of my life and follow the various stages in my emotional development". It brings together much-loved numbers by composers such as Saint-Saëns, Fauré, Massenet, Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninov and Elgar with newer music by Astor Piazzolla, the Italian cellist Giovanni Sollima and the pianist Jérôme Ducros, who also appears on the album. As Gautier Capuçon says: "In music, in life, communication is the essence of everything and of anything... You share something."

REVIEW:

Capuçon sheds fresh
Read more light on popular classics, and performers newer pieces by Sollima and Ducros with virtuosity and lyricism. – BBC Music Magazine

Popper’s Elfentanz zips by in a hummingbird whirr of iridescent colour and needlepoint precision: spectacular playing by any standards. And Nadia Boulanger would surely have enjoyed the neoclassical elegance that the pair bring to her pupil Piazzolla’s Le grand tango. – Gramophone Read less
