Jean-Yves Thibaudet & Gautier Capuçon premiere Dubugnon double concerto


This work was imagined in 2011 for Jean-Yves Thibaudet and Gautier Capuçon, who both wanted a Concerto from me. They are great friends and regular music partners, so I thought it would be unique to write a double Concerto for both of them, combining their sound, powerful expressivity and virtuosic technique with the orchestra …The French colours, transparency in the harmonies and subtlety of rhythm in Eros athanatos were particularly designed to suit the exquisite Gallic taste of the two dedicatees”
