Mozart : Violin Concertos 1 & 3, Sinfonia Concertante

Renaud Capuçon, Louis Langrée, Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Antoine Tamestit - 2009

The violinist Renaud Capuçon has a substantial catalogue on Virgin Classics, but this is only the second CD to focus on him in solo concertos – the first, the Mendelssohn and Schumann concertos was released in 2004. That being said, he has recorded L’arbre des songes, a de facto concerto, for a disc of works by the contemporary composer Dutilleux, and has also collaborated with Martha Argerich and Mischa Maisky in Beethoven’s Triple Concerto for EMI Classics, and, back on Virgin Classics, with his brother, Gautier in Brahms’ Double Concerto.

THE GUARDIAN  I  April 2009

“[…] Renaud Capuçon is one of today’s outstanding violinists […] a fabulously musical player who is as remarkable a chamber player as he is a concerto soloist.”

 

“It’s a considerable achievement to make Mozart’s unprepossessing first violin concerto […] as compelling as he does here, simply through a combination of unfussy phrasing and finely judged articulation.”

 

“A fine achievement”
