Renaud Capuçon (Uncredited)

Renaud Capuçon

When the French Victoires de la Musique nominated Renaud Capuçon as "New Talent of the Year" in 2000 and an international jury named him "Rising Star of 2000", they confirmed his place among the leading violinists of his generation. Renaud Capuçon was born in Chambéry in 1976 and began studying at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris at the age of 14 with Gérard Poulet and Veda Reynolds.  In 1992 he was awarded First Prize for Chamber Music and in 1993 First Prize for violin, with a special distinction from the jury.  In 1995 he won the Prize of the Berlin Academy of Arts and went on to study with Thomas Brandis, and later, Isaac Stern.  Mr.
