Cellist Gautier Capuçon is the constant presence in this programme of music by Robert Schumann. In the Cello Concerto his partners are Bernard Haitink and the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, and in a selection of chamber works his violinist brother Renaud and the pianist Martha Argerich. "Bernard Haitink is a wonderfully inspiring guide," says Gautier, "and Martha Argerich carries me along on the composer's waves of romanticism and passion."
"Capuçon's impetuosity and thoughtfulness are complemented by Haitink's lifelong engagement with this music...Each of the [chamber] works is played with collective grace and elan by these crème de la crème chamber musicians." Sunday Times
