Renaud Capuçon album release of Bartók‘s violin concertos

20.03.2018

Renaud Capuçon reaches another milestone in his discography with a recording of Bela Bartók’s violin concerts with the London Symphony Orchestra and their Principle Guest conductor François-Xavier Roth. Although a long-standing friendship between Capuçon and the orchestra has developed over the years through their many performances together, Bartók’s violin concerts are their first recording project together.
Bartók composed the two stylistically very different concertos three decades apart. Violin concerto No. 1 is an early work filled with optimism and influenced by Richard Strauss and Claude Debussy. The second violin concerto was written 1938 and takes stock of a lifetime of compositional experience, creating entirely new stylistic worlds with influences from Hungarian folk music, a revaluation of the strict classical form and an expansion of tonality.
The album will be released on CD and vinyl.
