“[Capuçon is] 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

“[Thibaudet] was spectacular, lending French panache to the proceedings in an account that was both technically formidable and charged with energy and passion.” Santa Barbara Independent

A 21st century ambassador for the cello, Gautier Capuçon is a multiple award winner celebrated for his “extraordinary sophistication, dynamic daring and supple phrasing” (The Times, U.K.). With a reputation as one of today’s finest pianists, Grammy-nominated Jean-Yves Thibaudet is “a master colorist and a great communicator, able to reduce a large concert hall to an intimate chamber of intent listeners” (The Seattle Times). Rich in expressive power and technical finesse, this is a must-see recital with two of France’s favorite sons.

Schumann: Fantasiestücke
