WildKat PR is delighted to announce that it is working with Solsberg Festival. The Argentinian cellist Sol Gabetta fulfilled her dream of curating her own classical music festival in the stunning surroundings of Northwestern Switzerland.
Sol Gabetta regularly performs with leading orchestras and conductors worldwide. Her debut with the Wiener Philharmoniker in 2004 helped her establish an international reputation as an extraordinarily talented cellist. She has won many prizes and awards including the Gramophone Young Artist of the Year Award, the Credit Suisse Young Artist Award and the ECHO Klassik Award.
Sol Gabetta has been a resident of the Frick valley, Canton of Aargau, for several years now. She is a devoted chamber musician and with the Solsberg Festival she brings her musical passion to her home. Sol Gabetta founded the Festival in 2006 and has since invited many of her fellow musicians to perform with her in the beautiful baroque churches of Olsberg and Rheinfelden. In June 2014 the festival welcomes renowned musicians such as Baiba Skride, Nicholas Angelich, Silvia Simionescu, Kristian Bezuidenhout, Cappella Gabetta and the Cuarteto Casals – artists, which stand at the forefront of a new generation of international soloists. Year on year, Sol Gabetta devises programmes, which excite her and her guests performers alike and visitors from all over Europe relish the festival’s warm and friendly ambience. With its unique programming and fantastic artist list, Solsberg Festival is an extraordinary addition to the musical landscape of the Basel region.
