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.”
