Why See Gautier Capucon and Yuja Wang?
Wang & Capucon Perform Franck & Rachmaninoff
As part of Carnegie Hall's 'Perspectives: Yuja Wang' series, the historic venue welcomes the Chinese superstar pianist, as well as french cello virtuoso Gautier Capucon to the stage for a duo of moving classical works. Considered to be one of the finest sonatas for piano and violin ever written, the program begins with the wit and whimsy of Cesar Franck's Violin Sonata in A Major, which has specifically been transposed for the cello.
A sparkling reflection of the Viennese Classical tradition, Franck's rich harmonic language and tonal color is followed by Rachmaninoff's Cello Sonata in G Minor. The iconic composers last ever chamber work, the sonata is the embodiment of the vibrant character and nationalism of Russia's Romantic era, filled with passion, vivacity and brightness. It's finale storms ahead with Rachmaninoff's trademark impassioned fury, soaring to the heavens in a rousing climax of melodic and thematic interplay between its two principal instruments.

Such a joyful hoot. With its kinetic dancing, broad mugging and belty anthems, it makes you believe in musical comedy again.

Cranston's wrenching performance stands on its own. In context, it's a terrifying reminder of how an all-too-human, anger-filled public figure, with access to a worldwide stage, can be mistaken for a god.
