Give and take

A chamber music evening in a class of its own: star cellist Gautier Capuçon meets a congenial partner on the piano – Nikolai Lugansky. Yet our portrait artist this year Capuçon has no illusions when he talks about his art: »Well, I believe in hard work. I believe there is no mystery in life. I think for any profession, any passion in life, whether you are a painter, a poet, a musician, a politician, it's not enough just to be gifted. Of course it's nice to be gifted, you don't have to practice so much, but at some point you have to work hard if you want to build a good foundation.«

This is what Gautier Capuçon passes on to young talents, whose promotion is of great concern to him. Capuçon has set up his own foundation for this purpose; he will present the current first prize winner, 22-year-old Kim Bernard, in concert. The pianist will interpret Frédéric Chopin's Ballade No. 4 in F minor, op. 52.

Together with Nikolai Lugansky, about whom Le Monde judges that he is »not only the most wonderful Russian pianist of modern times, he [is] one of the most outstanding artists of our epoch,« Gautier Capuçon will perform three outstanding sonatas for cello and piano. And once again, the chamber music partners will masterfully demonstrate the musical give and take.
