Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine, Christmas Issue 2013
In the Violin Concerto, Renaud Capucon and the conductor provide a lesson in how to generate rubato organically from the material...the soloist's tone and technique deserve the highest praise...The recording is clear and spacious.

The Guardian, 24th October 2013
The music [of La Muse] is fluent and pleasant without being memorable...The Caputons certainly do their best to make the music worthwhile...Renaud gives a performance of the third violin concerto that is full of ripely expressive effects; Gautier's version of the cello work plunges in with almost breathless intensity.

The Telegraph, 17th October 2013
These two concertos might be among his more familiar works, but these sensitively imagined performances make for essential listening.

MusicWeb International, 16th December 2013
They are all evidently fine musicians and cannot be faulted in matters of taste and technique...This is a fine disc neatly combining a rarity with first class performances of two deservedly acclaimed concertos.
