Gautier Capuçon is a true 21st century ambassador for the cello. Performing internationally with many of the world’s foremost conductors and instrumentalists, he is also founder and leader of the Classe d’Excellence de Violoncelle’ at the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris and a passionate ambassador for the Orchestre à l’École Association, which brings classical music to more than 40,000 thousands school children across France. A multiple award winner, he is acclaimed for his expressive musicianship, exuberant virtuosity, and for the deep sonority of his 1701 Matteo Goffriller cello L’Ambassadeur”.

For more than three decades, Jean-Yves Thibaudet has performed world-wide, recorded more than 50 albums, and built a reputation as one of today’s finest pianists. He plays a range of solo, chamber, and orchestral repertoire – from Beethoven through Liszt, Grieg, and Saint-Saëns; to Khachaturian and Gershwin, and to Olivier Messiaen, Qigang Chen, James MacMillan, Richard Dubugnon, and Aaron Zigman.

Their performance in Worcester will conclude the classical portion of our 2021-2022 Concert Season at historic Mechanics Hall. 

PANDEMIC POLICY

Before buying tickets, please be advised that all attendees will be required to 1) provide proof of vaccination against Covid-19 regardless of age, 2) wear masks while inside the venue, and 3) sit in socially distanced groups of seats during the performance. Anyone unable to follow these three protocols will be asked to leave without a refund. 

It’s the rare performer who can bring such ease and refinement to this music, while still giving everything he plays a sense of dramatic urgency.
