"Arvo Pärt's music takes us from darkness to light," says Renaud Capuçon. "It looks relatively simple on paper, but each note needs to have it's own life as it undergoes change. This music is not just relaxing - it has a depth and drama." In Autumn 2021 Renaud Capuçon becomes Artistic Director of the Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne. His first recording with the ensemble is devoted to the Estonian composer Arvo Pärt and among the eight works on the album are Spiegel i'm Spiegel, Tabula Rasa and Silouan's Song.
Capuçon throws down the gauntlet with a searingly intense performance of Tabula rasa (1977). The playing is impeccably controlled yet fiercely expressive…Throughout the album, Capuçon reveals a keen instinct for timing and structural balance as he and his fellow musicians breathe as one.
