Verve, energy and playfulness: the opening melody in Shostakovich’s first cello concerto haunts you and you just love it. Argentine virtuoso Sol Gabetta has been praised for her interpretation of the concert: “A technically formidable soloist” (Bachtrack).
She has the whole world as her field of work and collaborates with the leading orchestras and conductors, among them Sir Simon Rattle and Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra and Gustavo Dudamel and Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra. This is her first appearance with the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra. She replaces Truls Mørk who cannot come due to the corona pandemic.
The conductor, Klaus Mäkelä, also leads the orchestra in Sibelius’ enchanting Lemminkäinen Legends. The main character is Kalevala’s womaniser Lemminkäinen who has to pay dearly for his adventures. The four-piece suite’s most famous piece is The Swan of Tuonela, which in impressionistic twilight colours depicts a mysterious swan gliding around Tuonela, the island of the dead.
