Cello blow: Gautier Capucon is out for two months

Statement from the elegant French cellist:

Due to a shoulder injury and following my doctor’s advice, I have had to make the very difficult decision to take some time off from concert touring from now until mid-August to rest my shoulder.

I am very sad not to be able to perform the next planned concerts but I should be back soon.

The Israel Phiharmonic has replaced him in four concerts this week with the young Kian Soltani.

Gautier will also miss a two-week residency in Verbier.

    The headline made me imagine something quite different – a fight whereby the instrument was handled as a weapon.
