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.

Gautier Capucon


Gautier Capuçon is a true 21st century ambassador for the cello. He performs internationally with many of the world's finest conductors and instrumentalists and is also a passionate ambassador for the Orchestre à l'École association, which brings classical music to more than 40,000 school children across France. In January 2022, Gautier Capuçon set up his own foundation to support young and talented musicians at the beginning of their careers and to strengthen his commitment to young artists. The multiple prize-winner receives worldwide recognition for his musical expressiveness and great virtuosity and the deep sonority of his instrument "L'Ambassadeur" by Matteo Goffriler from 1701.
