This program combines two special moments from the 2012 Verbier Festival: excerpts from the opening and the final concerts, both featuring music by Brahms. The opening concert presented the Capuçon brothers in the German Romantic composer’s Double Concerto. The final concert features Maestro Manfred Honeck in a brilliant interpretation of Brahms’ Symphony No. 4.
The Capuçons are without a doubt the most famous brothers in the French classical music scene. Violinist Renaud and Cellist Gautier perform Brahms’ Double Concerto, a true masterpiece of the concerto literature and the composer’s last symphonic work, extremely forward-looking for its age. The musical brothers are accompanied by the Verbier Festival Orchestra under the baton of its music director, Charles Dutoit.
