Recorded for release in the fall of 2022 on the Warner Classics label, the Capucelli ensemble’s program will embark on an international tour following this concert in Paris.
The cellists present a set of works for seven cellos—including arrangements and transcriptions by Piazzolla, Tchaikovsky, Bartók, Dvořák, and Bizet—as well as creations and commissions by renowned composers such as Bryce Dessner, Richard Dubugnon, Guillaume Connesson, and—joining the ensemble to conduct his work at this performance—Bruno Mantovani.
