Gautier Capucon Plays Beethoven

When it comes to expressing emotion, Cellist Gautier Capucon has no equal. Now he is out with a new recording:

Beethoven: Cello Sonatas and Variations



Cello Sonatas Nos. 1-5 (complete)

Variations (12) on “See the conquering hero comes” for Cello and Piano, WoO 45

Variations (7) on “Bei Männern, welche Liebe fühlen”, for Cello and Piano, WoO 46

Variations (12) on “Ein Mädchen oder Weibchen” for Cello and Piano, Op. 66

All performed by Gautier Capuçon (cello) and Frank Braley (piano)

Following after last year’s live recording of the Shostakovich cello concertos, this album sees Gautier return to the studio with his friend and recital partner of many years, Frank Braley, in a program of Beethoven’s Sonatas for Cello and Piano. In addition the album includes Beethoven’s wonderful variations on three different themes – two on arias from Mozart’s opera Die Zauberflöte, and the other from Handel’s Judas Maccabaeus.

Here is Mr. Capucon in Beethoven’s Cello Sonata number 2:
