The nearly uninterrupted string of strong, successful albums produced by cellist Gautier Capuçon (and indeed his violinist brother, Renaud) demonstrates that the CD debut Face à Face was not just a fluke produced by child prodigies. Rather, Face à Face was a springboard for what has proven to be an enduring career and ever-improving musicianship. On this latest album without his brother, Gautier collaborates with pianist Gabriela Montero on the cello sonatas of Rachmaninov and Prokofiev. Fans of Capuçon's playing will recall that he had previously released a recording of the Rachmaninov sonata with pianist Lilya Zilberstein on the EMI label in 2003. While it may seem questionable to make duplicate recordings when he has recorded so little of the cello repertoire, it offers listeners an opportunity to see how his playing continues to mature even over a short span of five years. While some of the tempos are a little different than the 2003 recording, the most notable difference is that of sound, which has developed impressively with the help of his magnificent 1701 Gofriller cello. His command of sound is most obvious in the solo opening of the Prokofiev sonata. The immense depth and power of his sound on the lower two strings of the instrument is enough to mesmerize anyone. Power and projection permeate the album along with his stunning technique, deep understanding of the score, and pleasantly precise intonation.

Review by Mike D. Brownell, Allmusic.com

This has to be one of the fieriest and most exuberantly emotional readings of the Rachmaninoff Cello Concerto that I have ever heard. The two artists give no quarter to the composer’s already hyper-expressive melodic content—in fact, they take this aspect of the piece and run with it, never letting up, and never toning it down in any way. I was thrilled from first to last, and while this piece was never a particular display vehicle for overtly sophisticated prestidigitation (at least in the cello), it does require an almost superhuman degree of elegance, control, and unwavering sense of boundaries—it is too easy simply to play this work over the top with no idea of perspective. Both these players know that innately, and the results are perhaps the most gratifying I have heard in a long time. I might note that Gautier Capuçon has recorded this work to good effect before, on an album from the Lugano Festival (EMI) that Robert McColley enjoyed ( Fanfare 27:2), complaining only of the fairly close-up sound. That issue is resolved on this disc, as the sound is all one could wish. Isserlis and Hough created a splendid Hyperion album (covered elsewhere) that is excellent in every way, yet perhaps not as passionate as this one. Yo-Yo Ma and Emanuel Ax seem strangely distant to me now, though Truls Mørk remains splendid on Virgin. I reviewed a fine reading by Kniazev and Lugansky on Warner (30:6) that I called “an impassioned, sweeping reading that is stunning in its clarity and emotion.” This still holds, though I think Kniazev and Lugansky are more in the clarity department, giving us a more classically controlled emotional trip through the Russian landscape than this white-hot release under review. By the way, this duo honors the rarely taken first-movement repeat, as they do in their Lugano recording.

The Prokofiev, a far different sort of piece, is given the same smoking treatment and fares equally well. For the composer 1948 was a tough year, as he lost both his dear wife and his friend Sergei Eisenstein. He was accused of the silly “formalism” spouted by the state flunkies, and even after humiliating and debasing criticism, he was still condemned. In 1949, and for the then young cellist Rostropovich, he found his second wind and returned to his true self, with this intimate, truly personal sonata. I am not sure how closely guarded Gautier Capuçon and Gabriela Montero keep this work; it seems to me a much broader and more public display than perhaps the composer intended, but such is the nature of mature and substantial musical reflection we call interpretation. The fact is that they sell this work and sell it hard. It makes a nice foil for the Rachmaninoff, even though the cloth is woven from the same spindle.

The Vocalise and the variation from the Paganini Variations are for one thing only, and that is to show off the magnificent tonal opulence of the cellist. They do.
