Notes & Reviews:

Violinist Renaud Capuçon presents a new album that marries old with new, a program as intriguing as it is unexpected - pairing the music of J.S.Bach and Peteris Vasks. Capuçon describes his decision to record Distant Light, saying: "I fell in love with [Distant Light] as soon as I discovered it." With respect to the continuity of the album, Capuçon indicated that he decided to "put together two different worlds, Bach's and Vasks'...Their music does, however share a purity...it rises up from a source. When you play it, you don't get tired... It is healing music, feeding you and giving you energy." This is Capuçon's first recording as both soloist and conductor and also his first recording with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe.
