The evening presentation :

After performing together on stage last year at the St Prex Classics, when they accompanied stars of the Paris Opera, pianist Yuja Wang and cellist Gautier Capuçon were keen to meet again under the ‘Luna’, for a second collaboration that will set the sparks flying, you can be sure. Exclusively for Saint-Prex, the two stars have taken special pleasure in putting together a very program of contrasts, composed of two sonatas for cello and piano by Beethoven and Rachmaninov.

Yuja Wang is considered today China’s greatest woman pianist; she is internationally renowned along with her compatriot Lang Lang. She is celebrated for her technical virtuosity and her spontaneous and audacious playing style, with critics speaking of her « combination of dazzling technique and rare poetic instinct ».

As for cellist Gautier Capuçon, he needs no introduction here as he has become a sort of Festival mascot, the most faithful among the most faithful, each time appearing in a different artistic configuration.
