Gulbenkian Orchestra and Choir
Gautier Capuçon’s reputation as one of today’s most stimulating cellists – he is said to “play with the eloquence of an old sage and the fire of a teenager” – has made for performances under the direction of conductors like Lionel Bringuier and Gustavo Dudamel. This time he will perform the last concerto for soloist composed by Antonín Dvořák, in a programme that also includes the work for choir and orchestra with which Magnus Lindberg, a key composer of our time, responded to a co-commission from the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, inspired by a poem by Edith Södergran.
Cello Concerto in B minor, op. 104
Triumf att finnas till*
Song of the Birds (with the cello section of the Gulbenkian Orchestra)
*Commissioned by the Calouste Gulbenkian Gulbenkian, Orchestre National de Lille, London Philharmonic Orchestra and Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra.
This concert is included in La Nuit des Idées 2019.
