Antonin Dvořák composed his cello concerto in 18894-1895, and it has since earned a place among the most popular pieces of classical music in the world. Gautier Capucon’s interpretation has been described as hypnotic.
Richard Strauss based his massive orchestral poem on the book by Friedrich Nietzsche around the same time, and it has since been used to boost the ego at Elvis concerts and to symbolise enlightenment in the Stanley Kubrick film 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Gautier Capuçon is a true 21st century ambassador for the cello. Performing each season with many of the world’s foremost conductors and orchestras, he is also founder and leader of the “Classe d’Excellence de Violoncelle” at the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris. He is acclaimed internationally for his deeply expressive musicianship and exuberant virtuosity, as well as for the glorious sonority of his 1701 Matteo Goffriller cello.
