About the Concert

"My cello is comrade, lover, confidant, psychologist and mirror of the soul all in one."
What Gautier Capuçon says about his instrument could just as easily come from his close artist friend, pianist Daniil Trifonov. Both are not only virtuosos of their instruments, but also fascinate with the intensity and passion with which they interact with them, the music and of course the audience. For this concert they have brought highly demanding and at the same time immensely personal works for cello and piano: Prokofiev wrote his sonata for the cello icon Rostropovich, and behind almost every note one senses the threat to which musicians like him were exposed in the Stalin regime. Rachmaninov's sonata, in turn, was written as a thank-you to his doctor, who had brought him out of a deep depression through a hypnosis treatment. From darkness to light, one could describe how it proceeds musically.

At the invitation of the Dresden Philharmonic.


Claude Debussy
Sonate für Violoncello und Klavier

Sergei Prokofjew

Gautier Capuçon is a true 21st century ambassador for the cello. Performing internationally with many of the world’s foremost conductors and instrumentalists, he is also deeply committed to education and support for young musicians from every background.

Daniil Trifonov


Grammy Award-winning pianist Daniil Trifonov (dan-EEL TREE-fon-ov) has made a spectacular ascent of the classical music world, as a solo artist, champion of the concerto repertoire, chamber and vocal collaborator, and composer. Combining consummate technique with rare sensitivity and depth, his performances are a perpetual source of awe. “He has everything and more, … tenderness and also the demonic element. I never heard anything like that,” marveled pianist Martha Argerich.
