In this video, Spanish cellist Pablo Ferrández plays two cellos side by side: the 1696 ‘Lord Aylesford’ Stradivari which he has on loan from the Nippon Music Foundation and a 1694 Giuseppe Guarneri ‘filius Andreae’ from J A Beare in London.
As an encore to the concert on 18 May 2018, Renaud Capuçon performs a transcription for violin and piano of Debussy’s Clair de Lune.
