ELGAR – Cello Concerto performed by Sol Gabetta, Berlin Philharmonic & Sir Simon Rattle

Sol Gabetta opened the BBC Proms 2016 with her stunning performance of Elgar’s Cello Concerto.

Edward Elgar Cello Concerto in E minor György Ligeti  Atmosphères 

Igor Stravinsky Le Sacre du Printemps     Richard Wagner Prelude to Act 1 of the opera Lohengrin  

Berlin Philharmonic, Sir Simon Rattle, Sol Gabetta cello

Recorded live at Festspielhaus Baden-Baden, 2014, directed by Torben Schmidt Jacobsen

“Rattle’s presence can be heard, and felt, in virtually every bar of the score: the way he moulds phrases, nudges details to the fore, bends the line, holds tight to a salient accompanying detail (especially along the lower end of the spectrum) or responds to Gabetta’s characterful solo playing, now rather more stylised than it was before.” Gramophone DVD of the Month, February 2017
