This concert is presented by

Gautier Capuçon and Yuja Wang play Beethoven, Shostakovich and Rachmaninov
Works for cello and piano

Two fiery artists: Gautier Capuçon and Yuja Wang perform chamber music together live on!

The Verbier Festival discovered the both of them when they were still extremely young; because of their incredible talent and charisma, Gautier Capuçon and Yuja Wang have become two iconic musicians of the festival. Everybody remembers Yuja's stunning rendition of the Flight of the Bumblebee in that very same church in 2008. Gautier Capuçon also left his mark at the festival, notably with last year's Concerto for cello by Saint-Saëns.

In this concert, Beethoven revisits Mozart's Zauberflöte with a series of seven variations. Not to be missed also: Shostakovich's unique Sonata for cello and piano (1934), and Rachmaninov's Cello and piano sonata as well(1901), one of the few chamber music pieces ever written by the Russian composer.
