Warner Classics and Erato has announced the release of Renaud Capuçon’s new album: ‘Bartók Violin Concertos Nos. 1 & 2’


Warner Classics and Erato has this week announced the release of French violin virtuoso Renaud Capuçon’s new album: Bartók Violin Concertos Nos. 1 & 2.

Recorded with conductor François-Xavier Roth and the London Symphony Orchestra, the new disc contains Bartók’s 1st and 2nd Violin Concerti.



“It is not difficult to be inspired by Bartók … his two concertos are complete masterpieces …” Renaud has told The Violin Channel.

“The Bartók Concertos are always a physical challenge to perform - but at the same time, always an incredible musical journey …” he has said.

“I wish for the listeners to dream with us in the first concerto … and allow themselves to get completely swept away in the drama and waves of the second.”
