Sol Gabetta in Shostakovich's First Cello Concerto
Even the most difficult technical passages sounded like a deep inner song to Gabetta', wrote the Süddeutsche Zeitung about Sol Gabetta's playing. The celebrated Argentine cellist is soloist with the Radio Philharmonic Orchestra in Shostakovich. His First Cello Concerto is colourful, reflective but sometimes also fierce and caustic. Mørk in one of the most intense works for his instrument.
The Radio Philharmonic Orchestra pairs Shostakovich with Brahms. Dima Slobodeniouk, a much-loved guest conductor of the orchestra, leads the delightful ThirdSymphony, which he wrote in Wiesbaden in the summer of 1883. Hans Richter, who premiered the work in Vienna in early December of that year, christened it Brahms' Eroica.
