About

Continuing his dedication to his Classe d’Excellence de Violoncelle, which he has directed for seven years at the Fondation Louis Vuitton, Gautier Capuçon joins forces with six esteemed past laureates, all classes combined, to form a unique cello ensemble called Capucelli. Recorded for release in the fall of 2022 on the Warner Classics label, the Capucelli ensemble’s program will embark on an international tour following this concert in Paris.

The cellists present a set of works for seven cellos—including arrangements and transcriptions by Piazzolla, Tchaikovsky, Bartók, Dvořák, and Bizet—as well as creations and commissions by renowned composers such as Bryce Dessner, Richard Dubugnon, Guillaume Connesson, and—joining the ensemble to conduct his work at this performance—Bruno Mantovani.
