“Finesse and fire from a starry musical duo … A recital that showcased the very best in collaborative music-making,” was how the Toronto Star described a 2019 recital by pianist Yuja Wang and cellist Gautier Capuçon – who first met at Verbier and make the Festival a regular fixture on their summer schedule. The Classical Review in Boston has observed that “Capuçon and Wang share a similar vigor and alert spontaneity that make it seem as if they are finishing each other’s phrases. The French cellist plays with a robust intensity that brings out drama from even the most delicate of works … Wang proved a subtle and thoughtful partner … It seemed that the two had been playing together for a lifetime.”
