Notes and Editorial Reviews


Young Capuçons meet late Brahms and the brothers have a real winner here

Here is a Double Concerto to listen to again and again. Not least because it is rather unusual. The Capuçon brothers are accomplished chamber musicians and they often dig into this music as though in a chamber concert, taking time to explore, passing ideas between themselves. It doesn’t displace the recent Fischer/Müller-Schott, but sits alongside, totally different and complementary.
