David Fray & Renaud Capuçon
Two celebrated soloists recording together for the first time, pianist David Fray and violinist Renaud Capuçon, and turn to Johann Sebastian Bach and four of his sonatas for violin and keyboard: No 3 in E Major, No 4 in C minor, No. 5 in F minor and No 6 in G Major.
The two French musicians struck up a performing partnership at the St Denis Festival in 2015. They have since appeared together at such venues as London’s Wigmore Hall, Manarat Al Saadiyat in Abu Dhabi and at the Festival of La Roque d’Anthéron in Provence, and in April 2019 the duo perform Bach and Beethoven at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in Paris, and in Lyon, Bordeaux, Grenoble (not far from Capuçon’s hometown, Chambéry), Geneva and the Heidelberger Frühling festival.
“One of the most appealing listening experiences of present times… He sounds like no other pianist on record.”
