Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Concerto for Violin No. 5 in A major, K.219
Richard Strauss Metamorphosen
Ludwig van Beethoven Symphony No. 1 in C Major, op. 21
In 1997 Renaud Capuçon was invited by Claudio Abbado to become concertmaster of the Gustav Mahler Youth Orchestra. Since then, he has established himself as a top soloist and performed with many leading orchestras, including the New York, Berlin and La Scala Philharmonic Orchestras, the Boston, Vienna and London Symphony Orchestras, and many more. He has worked with such celebrated conductors as Daniel Barenboim, Gustavo Dudamel and Semyón Bychkov. In 2023 he will make his debut at Carnegie Hall in New York with the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, as part of a major US tour.
Since 2021, Capuçon has been the artistic director of the Lausanne Chamber Orchestra (OCL), one of the most prestigious ensembles of this kind in Europe. Since it was formed, the OCL has appeared regularly at the Aix-en-Provence Festival and also toured Germany and the United States, giving concerts with many leading soloists and conductors. The ensemble is characterized by its bold programming and imaginative use of new media.
This season they will perform a programme with two well-known works, Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 5 and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 1. They will also play a lesser known and extremely demanding piece, Richard Strauss's Metamorphosen, for twenty-three solo string instruments.
