VC GIVEAWAY | Win 1 of 5 Signed Newly-Released Gautier Capuçon ‘Schumann’ CDs [ENTER]

Enter now to win 1 of 5 signed newly-released Gautier Capuçon’s 'Schumann' CDs


To help celebrate the international release of superstar French cellist Gautier Capuçon’s new album Schumann, The Violin Channel in conjunction with Warner Classics & Erato is this week giving away 5 personally-autographed fresh-off-the-press CD copies.

Recorded with pianist Martha Argerich, violinist Renaud Capuçon, conductor Bernard Haitink with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, the disc features live performances of Schumann’s Cello Concerto in A Minor, Adagio and Allegro, Fantasiestücke Op. 73, Stücke im Volkston – and Fantasiestücke Piano Trio Op. 88.



“The idea for this disc came from my memory of these beautiful live Schumann chamber works recordings I was fortunate to record in concert with pianist Martha Argerich and my brother, violinist Renaud Capuçon at the Lugano Festival in Switzerland a number of years ago … ” Gautier has told The Violin Channel.

“I then thought how great these gems would couple with a live recording of Schumann’s Cello Concerto … and I remembered back to a wonderful live performance which had been recorded with Maestro Bernard Haitink and the Chamber Orchestra of Europe at the Concertgebouw … this performance stuck in my mind like no other, i remembered it coming together just so naturally …” he has said.

“I hope listeners can enjoy the special nature of these live recordings … recording live is challenging with many many added pressures, but I hope people will enjoy these very special performances, with very special collaborators, as much as I did.”
