Cello Concerto in B minor, Op. 104

Cello Concerto No. 2 in E minor, Op. 30
Gautier Capuçon (Cello)
Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra
Gautier Capuçon is one of the top classical music stars of our time. The recording of Antonín Dvorák’s extremely famous Cello Concerto that Capuçon now presents comes with a surprise: The work is coupled with the little-known concerto by Victor Herbert, one of the leading American composers of the late Romantic period, who inspired Dvorák to write his concerto.
‘Gautier Capuçon plays the cello with the control and wisdom of a much older musician. The lightness of his touch and the consistent clarity of his bow strokes are quite admirable in themselves, but when combined with an uncanny sweetness of tone in the higher registers they are breathtaking.’ Gramophone
