French violinist Renaud Capucone invites a Shanghai audience to sing “In Love in France” at the Shanghai Oriental Art Center on May 19.
Accompanied by pianist Guillaume Bellom, the duo will perform classic violin sonatas by Claude Debussy, Maurice Ravel and César Franck.
Earlier this month, cellist Gautier Capucone, Renaud Capucone’s younger brother, became the first musician from abroad to perform in Shanghai three years after China’s Ministry of Culture and Tourism approved that commercial performances from abroad can resume. .
In May, Renaud Capuçon will become the first foreign composer to step onto the stage of the Shanghai Oriental Art Center in more than three years.
Capuçon was born in Chambery, and at the age of four entered the conservatory in his native city. He entered the Paris Conservatory at the age of 14 and studied under Gérard Paulet.
He joined the European Union Youth Orchestra, and then the Gustav Mahler Youth Orchestra as first violinist under the direction of Claudio Abbado, and began his career as a soloist and chamber composer.
In 2000, he was named Talent of the Year by Victoires de la musique classique, which awarded him the title “Instrumental Soloist of the Year” in 2005.
Capuçon is also a talented viola player. He has been teaching at the Royal Northern College of Music in England since late 2016.
The programs Capucon chose for his Shanghai recitals are characterized by strong French traditions and tastes, allowing the full range of the violinist’s maturing skills.
