Sol Gabetta

The promising baroque ensemble Capella Gabetta and one of classical music’s most acclaimed young stars, Sol Gabetta, will come together at İş Sanat for a concert Dec. 23.

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 the brother of Sol Gabetta.

A Grammy Award nominee and the winner of the prestigious “Credit Suisse Young Artist Award” in 2004, as well as “Echo Klassik Awards” 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 received invitations from important orchestras all over the world.

With her outstanding talent, wit, elegance, intensity and lightness of touch in near-miraculous balance, she has come to charm audiences in every concert.

Sol Gabetta and Cappella Gabetta will offer a baroque feast with a repertoire ranging from Pachelbel to Durante and from Vivaldi to Platti.

Tickets cost 35 to 65 Turkish Liras. The concert starts at 8 p.m.
