Renaud Capuçon’s exciting new Mozart project comprises three albums, all to come before the end of the year. The project gets underway with the release of the complete violin sonatas recorded with pianist Kit Armstrong. The works have been central to the duo’s partnership since they made their debut together at the 2016 Salzburg Mozartwoche. Their creative vision brings to life the diverse character and inventive brilliance of compositions that span the breadth of Mozart’s mature career. “Everything works in a completely uncomplicated and natural way,” Capuçon observes about making music with Armstrong. “To perform these pieces with Kit is to embark on a wonderful musical journey.” In reply, Armstrong says, “When I hear Renaud render Mozart’s lyrical flights with all the sumptuousness and refinement that modern violin playing can have, I am convinced: it is beautiful, and that is what matters.”
