Renaud Capuçon makes Philharmonia Orchestra debut
Published: 01 October 2012
Renaud Capuçon will play Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto for his debut with the Philharmonic Orchestra this month.
The orchestra, conducted by Juraj Valcuha, will perform at the Royal Festival Hall in London on October 14 and again at the De Montford Hall in Leicester on October 15.
Canadian newspaper the Globe and Mail commented of a previous performance of the Mendelssohn Concerto: "[Capuçcon] gave probably the best performance I ever hope to hear of the Mendelssohn… [He] brought out all the fire and all the rapturous lyricism of the solo part in the first movement, all the ineffable simplicity and grace in the second, and all the buoyant legerdemain in the finale, note-perfect, pitch-perfect, technically scintillating and deeply engaged... For me, here, a new benchmark was raised.”
