A sought-after soloist for major orchestra engagements around the globe, Renaud Capuçon is a violinist of “panache, sensitivity and sizzling virtuosity” (Chicago Tribune). He’s also a passionate chamber musician who frequently partners with distinguished colleagues like Martha Argerich, Yuri Bashmet and Hélène Grimaud, and creates intriguing projects like A Violin in Versailles, a summer mini-residency at the palace. His own violin is the 1737 “Panette” Guarneri del Gesù formerly owned by Isaac Stern, alongside a fellow traveler: the Library’s Goldberg Baron Vitta Guarneri, just a few years older. He is joined by Guillaume Bellom in this all-French recital.
