COVID-19 – Day 122: La Musique de Renaud Capuçon pour Adoucir nos Moeurs


(E) Famous French cellist Gautier Capuçon was supposed to perform with MTT and the San Francisco Symphony orchestra several concerts from Tuesday to Saturday last week. But all those concerts were canceled due to the coronavirus.

Back to his house in France and without the possibility to move outside of his house, he decided, to our great pleasure, to offer some wonderful performances from his Twitter account @RCapucon:
