Mendelssohn, the long awaited new album by Sol Gabetta, will be released on January 19 and is available for pre-order now.
For her new double-album Sol Gabetta teams up with excellent French pianist Betrand Chamayou, with whom she plays sold out concerts in major concert halls. The album features Mendelssohn's complete works for cello and piano and new, short pieces written by famous contemporary composers Wolfgang Rihm, Heinz Holliger, Francisco Coll and Jörg Widman specifically for this album, all of which were inspired by Mendelssohn’s beautiful "Lied ohne Worte, Op. 109." The album was recorded at the famous new Philharmonie de Paris.
Sol Gabetta is one of the best and most successful cellists today, with a remarkable international career as a soloist and highly praised recordings, all of them bestsellers. Her recordings for Sony Classical have received numerous awards, including Gramophone, Echo Klassik and Diapason d'Or. Her last album Schumann was highly praised.
