Gautier Capuçon releases new album - Intuition

2 February 2018

Gautier Capuçon releases his latest album Intuition on Warner/Erato. Released on 2 February 2018, it is an album featuring a collection of short pieces for cello with orchestra and cello with piano. The orchestral works, which include pieces such as Massenet’s Méditation de Thais, Rachmaninov’s Vocalise, and Saint-Saëns’ ‘The Swan’ from Carnival of the Animals, were recorded with the Orchestre de Chambre de Paris under the direction of Douglas Boyd. The other half of the album features recital pieces from Joplin, Dvořák, Paganini, Piazzolla and Ducros, and were recorded with long-term duo-partner Jérôme Ducros. 

“Since childhood, intuition has guided me on my journey through the cello landscape. Before horsehair vibrates across strings, before technique and training kick in; music begins with intuition.” Gautier Capuçon 

Throughout the 2017/18 season, Capuçon will perform works from the Intuition album worldwide. With the Orchestre de Chambre de Paris he will appear in Aix, Paris, Berlin, Hannover, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, and Hamburg; and with Ducros he will perform in  Moscow, London, Toronto, and Santa Monica.
