Program to be announced.

Musical fireworks abound as two French virtuosos collaborate in a showcase of exhilarating musicality. Praised for his “mellifluous tones” (The Times), acclaimed cellist Gautier Capuçon is lauded “among the greatest of cellists” (The Arts Desk). Capuçon joins forces with two-time Grammy-nominated pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet, who is widely regarded as “the most soulful of players” (Gramophone).

"Capuçon shaped long phrases as if he were a singer whose breath never needed topping up."The Guardian
