Sol Gabetta

First invitation to the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande: 30 January 2008

Following her debuts with the Berlin Philharmonic and Sir Simon Rattle, the Los Angeles Philharmonic under Gustavo Dudamel and the BBC Symphony Orchestra with Sakari Oramo as the opening act of the BBC Proms, Sol Gabetta continues the 2019-2020 season as artist-in-residence of the Dresden Staatskapelle Orchestra. The Bamberg Symphony Orchestra has also chosen her as its season's "Portrait Artist", and she collaborates with the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, the NHK Symphony Orchestra, the Philharmonia Orchestra and the Orchestre de Paris.

Sol Gabetta was last season's "Star Artist" at the Lucerne Festival, where she performed with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, the Mahler Chamber Orchestra and the London Philharmonic Orchestra, and was highly acclaimed at international festivals. She also continues to draw inspiration from a wide circle of musical partners at the Solsberg Festival, of which she is Artistic Director.

In 2018, the Salzburg Easter Festival, during which she performs with the Vienna Philharmonic and Christian Thielemann, will honour her outstanding career with the Herbert von Karajan Prize. The prestigious ECHO Klassik awards her several times as Soloist of the Year, including in 2016 for her performance of the Cello Concerto No. 2 by Pēteris Vasks. A Grammy-nominated artist, she received the Gramophone Young Artist of the Year Award in 2010 and the Würth-Preis des Jeunesses Musicales in 2012.

Gabetta continues to develop an already extensive discography with SONY, her most recent album being devoted to the late works of Schumann. She has also recorded live concerts of Elgar and Martinů with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Sir Simon Rattle and Krzysztof Urbański.

Sol Gabetta plays a cello by Matteo Goffriller dated 1730, Venice, supplied by Atelier Cels.
