Since the beginning of his career, Renaud Capuçon has been loyal to his record company. During the Mozartwoche in Salzburg, on the 27th of January – the day he turned 40- Renaud Capuçon played Dutilleux’s concerto for violin « l’Arbre des songes » with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and under the direction of Tugan Sokhiev. The following day, in the presence of Alain Lanceron, president of Warner Classics and Erato (in the picture), the violonist renewed his contract with the Erato label. While Lalo/Bruch/Sarasate has just been released, another record is in the making. This album will be available during the 2016/2017 season, and will include three concertos dedicated to Renaud Capuçon himself. These were recorded live the first time they were performed: Bruno Mantovani’s concerto with the Opéra national de Paris, Wolfgang Rihm’s, with the Wiener Symphoniker, both under the direction of Philippe Jordan, and Pascal Dusapin’s, with the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France under the direction of Myung-Whun Chung.
“As I celebrate my 40th birthday, I am looking forward to upcoming projects and delighted to renew this long-term contract with Warner Classics that has started 16 years ago!” – Renaud Capuçon in Salzburg on January 27, 2016
