Following recent residencies with Staatskapelle Dresden and Bamberg Symphony, cellist Sol Gabetta opened the 2023–24 season with a tour of Germany and Austria with Orchestre philharmonique de Radio France conducted by Mikko Franck. During the season she reunites with Paavo Järvi, on tour with the Estonian Festival Orchestra, and the Vienna Philharmonic, with Andrés Orozco-Estrada at Mozartwoche Salzburg. Her United States engagements include The Cleveland Orchestra with Klaus Mäkelä, followed by her New York Philharmonic debut, led by Elim Chan.
Gabetta maintains her longstanding connection to the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra for Weinberg’s Cello Concerto with Andris Nelsons, and returns to the Munich Philharmonic for Lutosławski’s Cello Concerto with Krzysztof Urbański. She appears with Constantinos Carydis and the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra in tributes to Shostakovich and Schnittke, and tours Germany with violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja. An advocate of new compositions for her instrument, Gabetta performed the world premiere of a newly commissioned Cello Concerto by Francisco Coll — created for her — at Radio France; she reprises it this season at the BBC Proms with the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Chan.
Gabetta continues to build her extensive discography with Sony Classical, most recently releasing late Schumann works and a live recording of Elgar and Martinů cello concertos with the Berlin Philharmonic, led by Simon Rattle and Urbański, respectively.
Sol Gabetta performs on several Italian master instruments from the early 18th century, including a cello by Matteo Goffriller from 1730 Venice, provided to her by Atelier Cels Paris, and, since 2020, the famous Bonamy Dobree-Suggia by Antonio Stradivarius from 1717, on generous loan from the Stradivari Foundation Habisreutinger. She has been teaching at the Basel Music Academy since 2005.
