After an inaugural Euryanthe Overture by Weber, Charles Dutoit is joined by the most famous brothers on the French classical music scene: the Capuçon brothers performing the Double concerto by Brahms. Renaud (violin) and Gautier Capuçon (cello) play this masterpiece of the concert repertoire, the composer's last orchestral score, a very bold one at that time.
Last but not least, the monumental Symphony No. 5 by Tchaikovsky, tragic with the introduction of its Andante on clarinet and light with his highly lyrical waltz.
Renaud and Gautier Capuçon appear with the courtesy of Virgin Classics.
