Gautier Capuçon cello
Gautier Capuçon teams up again with the Quatuor Ebène for Schubert's masterful quintet, the epitome of Romanticism and a cello tour de force
Haydn Quartet op. 20 No. 2
Schubert String Quintet op. posth. 163 D. 956
The "four trendy young men” who make up the Quatuor Ebène, which dazzled us last season with its Carte Blanche du Dimanche Matin and with Philippe Jaroussky at his Verlaine recital, are back accompanied on this occasion by their friend cellist Gautier Capuçon. Dark-haired and loquacious in contrast to his blonde, reserved elder brother, Renaud, he is an artist who exudes both spirit and charm. Family traits aside, this young French instrumentalist relishes working with others. The important thing for him in a concert or chamber formation is to share. With the Quatuor Ebène, he has discovered some first-class “fellow travellers”.
