French cellist Gautier Capuçon is a true 21st century ambassador for the cello. He is acclaimed internationally for his deeply expressive musicianship and exuberant virtuosity, as well as for the glorious sonority of his 1701 Matteo Goffriller cello, which showcases his phenomenal technical skills. “It’s the rare performer who can bring such ease and refinement to this music, while still giving everything he plays a sense of dramatic urgency.” (San Francisco Chronicle) An artist with a remarkable flair for chamber playing and a composer himself, Jérôme Ducros is “a brilliant and very gifted and sensitive pianist.” (The Subterranean Review) Together, they will perform sonatas by Brahms and Rachmaninov, and some of their favourite French and Russian pieces.
