The Violin King - Renaud Capuçon's portrait on 3 CDs

The violin is the star of the classical solo instruments. Hardly any violinist of the young generation has mastered such a diverse repertoire as Renaud Capuçon.

The 3 CD box Le Violon Roi leads the listener through the vast discography of the charismatic French violinist Renaud Capuçon. From concert to chamber music to encores - a glorious violin festival.

Le Violon Roi is also a document of Capuçon's musical encounters that had an impact on his career - first of all those with his brother, the equally giftet cellist Gautier Capuçon, but also with pianists like Martha Argerich, Frank Braley and Nicholas Angelich. The box features great moments with the clarinettist Paul Meyer, the flautist Emmanuel Pahud and the violist Gérard Caussé.
