Introducing Renaud Capuçon
feat. Morricone, John Williams, Brahms & Korngold
Renaud Capuçon is one of today's foremost international violinists, firmly established as a soloist, recitalist and chamber musician, and performing in concert halls and festivals over the world.
So unsurprisingly he's no stranger to the recording studio; indeed he's been releasing a steady stream on the Erato label for almost two decades now, collecting numerous awards and nominations for them along the way. Just to pick a few recent notables, in 2017 he won an Echo Klassik for his recording of three brand new violin concertos written especially for him for Rihm, Dusapin and Mantovani, and 2018 brought a BBC Music Magazine award for his Debussy Sonatas and Trios. And to just to really drive home what a steady stream of recordings it's been, 2018 has featured the release first of the two Bartok violin concertos, and now an album of film music, Cinema. Surely therefore, there could have been no better artist than Renaud to kick off Grammofy's brand new strand, Take Five, where an artist shares their five favourite recordings and the stories behind them (four recordings of their own, and a fifth recorded by someone else).
With Cinema just out, it's with Cinema that Renaud begins, selecting Cinema Paradiso and Schindler's List as his first two works. From there, he tells us why his recordings of Korngold's Violin Concerto and Brahms's first Sextet mean so much to him. He then closes with more Brahms, but this time a recording made by one of his own violinist idols, Christian Ferras, in 1974: Brahms's Violin Concerto, with the Wiener Philharmoniker under Carl Schuricht.
