Gautier Capucon (Cello)

Gautier Capucon has been called “A young star in the cello firmament” by Gramophone magazine.
Since winning the French Victoires de la musique (France’s equivalent of a Grammy) as “New Talent of the Year” in 2001 he has quickly established himself as one of the leading cellists of his generation.
Born in Chambéry in France in 1981, Gautier Capucon was five years old when he began to study the cello. He studied in Paris at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique (CNSMP) with Philippe Muller and with Heinrich Schiff in Vienna. In 1999, Gautier Capucon won First Prize at the André Navarra Competition in Toulouse and Second Prize at the International Cello Competition in Christchurch (New Zealand). In June 2000, he was awarded the Cello and Chamber Music Prize by the CNSMP and received a Burlotti-Buitoni Trust award in 2004.
Gautier Capucon has performed on tour in France, Switzerland and Germany with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe conducted by Myung-Whun Chung. He has also performed with the Bordeaux, Strasbourg, Belgrade and Jerusalem Orchestras, the Vienna Chamber Orchestra, the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, the Houston Symphony under Hans Graf, the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, the Solistes Européens Luxembourg, Rome’s Santa Cecilia Orchestra and Myung-Whun Chung, the Ensemble orchestral de Paris and John Nelson, the Orchestre Philharmonique de Monte-Carlo and Armin Jordan and the Orchestre de Paris and Christoph Eschenbach.
Recent highlights have included performances with the Munich Philharmonic under Paavo Jarvi, the Orchestre National de France, the Dresden Philharmonie, a tour with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, a critically acclaimed recital tour in the USA with his brother Renaud Capuçon, appearances with the Orchestre de Bordeaux under Louis Langree, La Camerata Athens with Sir Neville Marriner and a trio tour through Italy with Katia Labèque and Viktoria Mullova.
In 2006, he gave his critically acclaimed debuts with the Philadelphia Orchestra under Charles Dutoit and the Detroit Symphony Orchestra under Hans Graf. The 2007–2008 season included his debut with the National Symphony Orchestra under Leonard Slatkin, a return engagement with the Philadelphia Orchestra and a debut trio tour with his brother Renaud Capuçon and pianist Nicholas Angelich in February 2008. A dedicated chamber musician, he performs with Martha Argerich, Daniel Barenboim, Yuri Bashmet, Myung-Whun Chung, Helene Grimaud, Paul Gulda, Stephen Kovacevich, Katia and Marielle Labèque, Vadim Repin, Jean-Yves Thibaudet, Lilya Zilberstein, Nikolaj Znaider, the Castagneri and Ysaye Quartets and his brother Renaud.
As a Virgin Classics exclusive artist, he has recorded chamber music by Ravel with Renaud Capucon and Frank Braley and Brahms’ Piano Trios No. 1, 2 and 3, with Renaud Capucon and pianist Nicholas Angelich. Now considered one of the most promising cellists of his generation, his recordings include Haydn’s Cello Concertos with the Mahler Chamber Orchestra under Daniel Harding and Face a Face, a disc of 20th century works for cello and violin, together with Renaud Capucon. Gautier Capucon’s release of Schubert’s “Trout” Piano Quintet with his brother Renaud, Gerard Caussé, Alois Posch and Frank Braley was named “Editor’s Choice” by Gramophone magazine (March 2005) and “Disc of the Month” in February 2005 by Classic FM. In January 2008, Gautier Capucon released a CD of Prokofiev and Rachmaninoff Sonatas with Gabriela Montero. A review by Strings Magazine stated “It is hard to imagine a more deeply felt, compellingly projected performance of these works. Both players are masters of their instruments.”
