Conservatoire Darius Milhaud

Renaud Capuçon has invited a group of exceptional artists for an evening with Brahms. A regular visitor to Aix at Easter, the violist Adrien La Marca – a native of the city - will, this evening, place his stand between Edgar Moreau, one of the most extraordinary cellists of his generation, and the violinists Guillaume Chilemme and Raphaëlle Moreau.

Three maestros round off this top-flight line-up: the violist Gérard Caussé, the cellist Gautier Capuçon and the pianist Nicholas Angelich, the latter to play the Quintet for piano and strings, which is doubtless the composer's most famous piece of chamber music.

The two String Quintets, express a more profound feeling, and these more mature works still resonate with the influence of popular tzigane music that tends to run through a number of opus by Brahms.
