Company photoThe promising baroque ensemble Capella Gabetta and one of classical music’s most acclaimed young stars Sol Gabetta will be together on İş Sanat stage tonight.
The concert starts at 8 p.m. and tickets are available at Biletix booths. Created originally for an extended concert tour for the 2010/2011 season and for a CD production for Sony Music, Cappella Gabetta made its debut in Hamburg (Musikhalle), Munich (Herkulessaal), Nuremberg (Meistersingerhalle), Berne and Zurich (Tonhalle) in December 2010. An additional concert tour in the summer of 2011 took the ensemble to a number of eminent international music festivals, including Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Dresden and the Menuhin Festival Gstaad. The concertmaster of the ensemble is the brilliant baroque violinist Andres Gabetta, who is a regular concert master of the Basel Chamber Orchestra and also brother of Sol Gabetta.
Grammy Award nominee and winner of the prestigious “Credit Suisse Young Artist Award” in 2004 and “Echo Klassik Award” in 2007 and 2009, the charismatic cellist Sol Gabetta is forging an impressive career; she has a recording contract with Sony Classical, is the director of her own festival and has invitations from important orchestras all over the world. With her outstanding talent, wit, elegance, intensity and lightness of touch in near-miraculous balance she succeeds to charm the audiences in each of her concerts. Sol Gabetta and Cappella Gabetta will offer a gorgeous baroque feast with a repertoire ranging from Pachelbel to Durante and from Vivaldi to Platti.
