Notes & Reviews:

This release sees him explore some of the most beatiful and lyrical works for violin and orchestra in the repetoire. Bruch's G Minor Concerto is perhaps the most popular violin concertos today, and the composer's most famous work. The Lalo Symphonie espagnole is one of several works written by French composers in the latter part of the 19th century evoking the rhythms and melodies of Spain. From Pablo de Sarasate, the Spanich virtuoso violin superstar, Renaud performs Zigeunerweisen, and iconic showpiece capturing the essence of the gypsy violin tradition.

Firmly established as one of the world's greatest violinists, Renaud Capucon's career both on the stage and as a recording artist has spanned a wide gamut of concerto repetoire, chamber music and recitals. He has a reputation for impeccable performances and fine interpretations of classics and lesser-known repetoire, from his most recent albums with critically-acclaimed readings of the Bach Violin Concertos and the Vasks Violin Concerto, and a recital disc with Khatia Buniatishvili, to the Beethoven / Korngold and Brahms/Berg concerots, Renaud has become known for the breadth of his repetoire, his world-class chamber music partners, and the quality of is playing.

Sunday Times, 17th January 2016
[The Lalo] gets a by turns flamboyant and dreamy reading from Caputon, whose keen tone and easy bravura recall the great Arthur Grumiaux's famous recordings. If the Bruch concerto is a less obvious bedfellow, Jarvi and his orchestra accompany the soloist expansively.

Gramophone Magazine, March 2016
There are no rough edges in this take on Lalo's Symphonie espagnole... instead we have a performance full of charm and mischief that emphasises the work's optimism... Capuçon certainly doesn't lack flamboyance.

BBC Music Magazine, May 2016
Caputon gives a committed reading, and isn't afraid to dig into the strings when it's apt. There's virtuosity in the faster movements and a real sense of the Spanish rhythmic character of the music... there's a similar engagement with idiom in the Sarasate... and JSrvi and the orchestra provide eagle-eared support.
