Firmly established as one of the world’s greatest violinists, Renaud Capuçon career both on the stage and as a recording artist has spanned a wide gamut of concerto repertoire, chamber music and recitals. He has a reputation for impeccable performances and fine interpretations of classics and lesser-known repertoire, from his most recent albums with critically-acclaimed readings of the Bach Violin Concertos and the Vasks Violin Concerto, and a recital disc with Khatia Buniatishvili, to the Beethoven / Korngold and Brahms/Berg concertos, Renaud has become known for the breadth of his repertoire, his world-class chamber music partners, and the quality of his playing.
Celebrating his 40th birthday this year, Capuçon presents three world-premiere recordings of violin concertos written for and dedicated to him by three of today’s most exciting composers: Wolfgang Rihm, Pascal Dusapin and Bruno Mantovani - with the Orchestre de l'Opéra national de Paris, Wiener Symphoniker and Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France under the conductors Myung-Whun Chung and Philippe Jordan.
