Solima: Lamentatio

Add to calendar
Giovanni Sollima has made a name for himself as a cello virtuoso out of the ordinary. His pieces are inspired by music as diverse as old Italian renaissance and today’s black metal – he attracts admirers in all listener categories.

Lamentatio, “lament”, was written in memory of all the Armenian victims – over a million – who were killed in the early 20th century in the Ottoman Empire. The cellist sings his lament but also expresses the unwavering will-power of the Armenian people in virtuoso, expressive rhythms. As is shown by the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra’s cellist Antonio Hallongren in this recording.
