Former NSO Music Director Leonard Slatkin returns to conduct Gautier Capuçon playing Saint-Saëns’s Cello Concerto No. 1. Also on the program are Rachmaninoff’s Symphony No. 3 and Anna Clyne’s << rewind <<.
Gautier Capuçon was born in Chambéry in 1981 and began playing the cello at the age of five. He studied at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique in Paris and in 1999 was awarded first prize by the Maurice Ravel Music Academy of Saint-Jean-de Luz and first prize again in the André Navarra Competition in Toulouse. In June 2000, he won the Cello and Chamber Music Prize in the CNSMP and has since attended Heinrich Schiff’s master classes in Vienna.
Performing as a member of the European Community Youth Orchestra and the Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester in 1997 and 1998 gave Gautier the chance to work with Bernard Haitink, Kent Nagano, Pierre Boulez, Daniele Gatti, Seiji Ozawa, and Claudio Abbado. He now performs regularly as a concert soloist and has played with, amongst others, the Chamber Orchestra of Europe and with the Santa Cecilia Orchestra Rome, both under 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 under Christoph Eschenbach.
