Gautier Capuçon: Emotions

Gautier Capuçon: Emotions

Erato 521413

The dynamic French cellist Gautier Capuçon recorded a selection of favorite short pieces just before the global pandemic began last year. He released this collection -- "Emotions" -- in the fall after setting out on the road across France for "Un Eté en France" (a summer in France), performing in village squares, schools, and other community spaces.

This week, we'll hear well-loved pieces from this album, including Debussy's Clair de lune, Dvořák's Song to the Moon, Tchaikovsky's Sentimental Waltz, Schubert's Ave Maria, and a dozen others. These are beautiful performances -- we hope you find this music meaningful and uplifting.
