French cellist Gautier Capuçon, 40, has announced the launch of his philanthropic foundation which will aim to support exceptional young artists in France and abroad during their studies and to help them in the first steps of their career.

Capuçon said: « This philanthropic project is very close to my heart and continues my long-standing commitment to music education and charitable organizations. I know how difficult it is to achieve a career as a classical musician and the pandemic we are going through has only made things worse. That’s why I wanted to go even further in accompanying and transmitting to help talented young musicians in the realization of their dream. »

Capuçon’s partners as artistic advisors are pianist Frank Braley and conductor Alain Altinoglu.

The first winner of the foundation is the French pianist Kim Bernard (*1999).
