Info for Mozart: The Violin Concertos
Mozart has been part of the core repertoire of the Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne since its founding in 1942, and the orchestra's extensive discography includes acclaimed recordings of the composer's complete piano concertos and serenades. Now, however, the reading of the violin concertos also reflects the relationship between the violinist and the ensemble, as Capuçon has taken up its artistic directorship in the 2021/22 season. "And with that it was clear that I should record the five Mozart concertos with the OCL," says Capuçon. "There is something like a very natural musical affinity with this repertoire, the sound of the orchestra and its sense of phrasing are immensely inspiring. A real joy to record these works together."
In dual dignities as soloist and conductor, Capuçon turned to the hidden musical challenges of the works, armed with a sense of their immediacy and a determination to make them come thoroughly alive in the moment of performance. The 2-CD album, recorded last September at the Théâtre de Beaulieu in Lausanne, also features the Rondo in C major K. 373 and the Adagio in E major K. 261.
