Concert series with the Orchestre National de Lyon

Following his tour of Spain with the Tonhalle Orchester Zürich, Lionel Bringuier returns to France for three concerts with the Orchestre National de Lyon and cellist Gautier Capuçon, on May 3 & 4 in Lyon and on May 5 in Evian. This season, Bringuier is “Artiste associé” with the ensemble, leading them in a series of performances throughout the season.

Works featured in these concerts include Guillaume Connesson’s Feux d’artifice, Haydn’s Cello Concerto No.1 in C major, Hob.VIIb:1 with Mr. Capuçon as soloist, and Rachmaninov’s Symphony No 2 in E minor, Op. 27. Mr. Bringuier and Mr. Capuçon work together frequently; an audio recording of their collaboration featuring works by Saint-Saëns can be found via Lionel’s Discography page.

Critical acclaim from a 2015 concert with the Cleveland Orchestra:

“Bringuier and Capuçon studied in the same studio at the Paris Conservatoire, and they brought a long artistic relationship as well as a lot of celloistic savvy to this performance … Gautier Capuçon embraced the concerto with passion, flair and freedom, and Bringuier and the Orchestra were at his heels at every turn in the drama.” (
