  • The Cite de la Musique in tranquil Soissons, an hour from Paris

    December 2019

    The Cite de la Musique in tranquil Soissons, an hour from Paris, was our home for several days as we recorded all sixteen Mozart Sonatas for Violin and Piano with Renaud Capucon and Kit Armstrong in sessions and concerts.  To record all of these masterworks in three long days was an extraordinary accomplishment that required intense concentration and focus, something these artists have in abundance.  Each of these works is a uniquely beautiful outpouring of Mozart's genius. Michael Fine produced the sessions with Jin Choi, engineer. Editing to start soon!
