For this album, which is made up entirely of “treats” from all manner of genres, the cellist Gautier Capuçon seems to have wanted to “illustrate” his life by retracing different emotional stages, from his childhood in Savoy to his Vienna years, by way of his studies in Paris and his discovery of more recent repertoires. This is a sort of invitation on a voyage, in the company of the Paris Chamber Orchestra, or by pianist Jérôme Ducros, for a few unmissable pieces by Saint-Saëns, Massenet, Popper, Joplin, Tchaikovsky, Popper, Piazzola, Casals or Paganini: this way, we are able to hear works which are often performed as transcriptions, as in the golden age of salon virtuosos. These hyper-virtuoso, hyper-romantic pieces allow us to enjoy our cellist’s art to its full.
