Renaud Capucon / Martha Argerich

Beethoven, Schumann, Franck (CD)

Renaud Capuçon and Martha Argerich came together in April 2022 for a joint recital at the Easter Festival in Aix-en-Provence, and their extraordinary rapport comes across in this performance of three of the repertoire’s finest violin sonatas, captured live in a concert that they dedicated to their friend and colleague, the pianist Nicholas Angelich, who had died shortly before. Having first met over thirty years ago, when he was a young violinist and she was already a legendary pianist, Capuçon and Argerich are now a well-established duo. They know one another so well that, whenever they go out on stage, “there is no fear,” says Capuçon. “It’s as if we just hold hands and leap.”
