Elgar & Moussorgski

Just over 100 years ago, Edward Elgar composed a poignant cello concerto. Lionel Bringuier and Gautier Capuçon bring it back to life alongside ‘Pictures at an Exhibition’, orchestrated by Ravel.

A poetic and passionate bowman, Gautier Capuçon has no equal when it comes to exploring the thousand and one nuances of the scores he plays. We can't wait to discover his interpretation of Elgar's delicate Cello Concerto, a profound, intimate and moving work. In counterpoint, a key work in the 19th-century Russian repertoire: Pictures at an Exhibition, in which Mussorgsky amuses himself by transcribing into music the paintings he admires at an exhibition devoted to his friend Viktor Hartmann, who had just died aged just 39. A whimsical and fantastic visit, with an almost cinematographic presence!
