The Argentinian cellist Sol Gabetta has been a resident of the Frick Valley, Canton of Aargau, for several years now. In 2006, she founded the Solsberg Festival and fulfilled her dream of creating a month of music-making in stunning surroundings and with repertoire that excites her and her fellow musicians. The artists performing with Sol Gabetta are leading a new generation of international soloists and the baroque churches of Olsberg and Rheinfelden provide an incomparable setting for their music. The year 2015 will see internationally renowned musicians such as Patricia Kopatchinskaja, Bertrand Chamayou, Nicholas Angelich and Vilde Frang perform at the festival. For the first time this year, the Solsberg Festival offers concerts in France’s Alsace region and Germany’s Black Forest as well in Switzerland.
