Renaud Capucon performs Bruch, Lalo, and Sarasate.
Performed by Renaud Capuçon (violin), with the Orchestre de Paris, Paavo Järvi conducting.
This is a recording of the best-known works of three composers – Edouard Lalo, Pablo de Sarasate and Max Bruch.
Renaud Capuçon explains:
“These three works, first heard between 1868 and 1878, are among the most famous in the history of the violin, and there are links of friendship and respect between their three composers…”
All three pieces also have a special significance for Capuçon: “I first approached these works when I was 12 years old and studying at the Paris Conservatoire with Veda Reynolds. I played the Bruch in my first competitions; the Lalo was the first piece I played for Gerard Poulet [Capuçon’s other teacher at the Paris Conservatoire] and the Sarasate featured in my first proper recital.”
