The inaugural season of Distinctive Experiences offers three rare opportunities to see and hear world-renowned artists—up close and personal—in the exceptionally intimate Irvine Barclay Theatre.
Jean-Yves Thibaudet, piano Gautier Capuçon, cello
Musical fireworks abound as two French virtuosos collaborate in a showcase of exhilarating musicality. Praised for his “mellifluous tones” (The Times), acclaimed cellist Gautier Capuçon is lauded “among the greatest of cellists” (The Arts Desk). Capuçon joins forces with two-time Grammy-nominated pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet, who is widely regarded as “the most soulful of players” (Gramophone).
