 Update me on new releases by Causse

Gerard Causse (b1948)

Having studied first at Toulouse, Caussé completed his training at the Paris Conservatoire, winning first prizes in viola and chamber music. As well as giving solo recitals and appearing as a soloist with orchestras worldwide he has played chamber music with numerous quartets and ensembles throughout his career. He is currently Professor of Viola at the Paris Conservatoire and the Queen Sofia College of Madrid.

Caussé regards Mozart as the first composer to realise the viola’s potential as the ‘mediator’ between upper and lower stringed instruments, both orchestrally and in the string quartet. He is also a champion of new repertoire for the viola: a number of concertos have been written for him and he has given several premières. A significant discography with major labels such as EMI, Phillips, Erato, and Deutsche Grammophon includes recordings that have won the Grand Prix de l’Académie Charles Cros, the Gabriel Fauré Prize, the SACEM Prize and the French Grand Prix du Disque.
