A recital recorded live at the 2022 Aix-en-Provence Easter Festival celebrates the long-standing creative relationship of violinist Renaud Capuçon and pianist Martha Argerich. The album presents three masterworks of the chamber repertoire, opening with Robert Schumann’s Sonata in A major, Op. 105, a mix of romantic passion and rhapsodic charm. The artists bring to life the dialogue in Ludwig van Beethoven’s “Kreutzer” Sonata with an uncanny depth of understanding and eloquence. Capuçon and Argerich crown their program with César Franck’s Violin Sonata in A major, drawing listeners deep into its dream-like music with playing of spontaneity, beauty, and emotional power.
