Capucon, Gautier

Rhapsody / Cello Sonatas

CD
7 Jan 2008

Barcode: 0094638578628

Composer: Rachmaninov, Prokofiev
Other participants: Gabriela Montero

'Capuçon's elegant, singing tone responds especially well to the Andante, with gentle exchanges between the instruments. Prokofiev's Sonata may seem an unusual coupling but it contrasts nicely, with it’s own latent lyricism and with the cheerful central Moderato that has all the harmonic wit and melodic charm of the composer at his best.' Gramophone
