Cappella Gabetta, Andreas Gabetta

This new recording by "Capella Gabetta", the ensemble founded by Sol Gabetta & her baroque violin playing brother Andreas Gabetta, features music performed in the Austrian Habsburg court from the end of the 16th century through to the 17th century. During this era the Hapsburg court was actively incorporating Italian music. Except for the Vivaldi, the album concentrates on the work of the more unfamiliar composers, with an emphasis on the solo violin, expertly performed by Andreas Gabetta. The "Cappella Gabetta" has enabled Sol Gabetta to make one of her musical dreams come true. She, her brother – concertmaster Andres Gabetta – & a hand-picked team of highly qualified musicians from the same musical background devise repertoires of baroque & early classical music which they perform on original instruments at concerts & in the studio. As well as performing masterpieces by famous baroque & early classical composers, the Cappella is also keen to introduce audiences to rare gems by lesser known composers such as Giovanni Platti, Fortunato Chelleri, Andrea Zani & Johann Adolph Hasse. It has developed a particularly close working relationship with Schloss Wiesentheid music archive. The ensemble was established in December 2010 & has already made very successful guest appearances in Paris (Salle Gaveau), Hamburg (Musikhalle), Munich (Prinzregententheater), Zurich (Tonhalle), Berlin (Philharmonie) and Istanbul, as well as at illustrious festivals such as the Bremen Music Festival, Festival Baroque de Lyon, Rheingau Music Festival and others.

“The constant quest for rare pieces of repertory continues, and this collection explores some very little-known names...The real unknown here is Joseph Timmer, one of a prolific family, whose Concerto à 5 has not been recorded before.” The Guardian, 3rd July 2016 ***

“Immensely feel-good stuff…with toe-tapping tunes and plenty of virtuoso showing off. Gabetta’s playing itself is neat-fingered, lean-toned and full of nuance, supported by an ensemble clearly enjoying themselves…great fun and beautifully played” Gramophone Magazine, September 2016

Sol Gabetta (cello)

Cappella Gabetta, Andres Gabetta

Sol Gabetta is the young female superstar of the cello. The Argentine-French cellist, who speaks six languages fluently, has captured the hearts of audiences in many countries with her playing and her charisma. Sol has received prestigious awards: she won three Echo Klassik prizes in Germany, received Argentina’s Gardel Prize as “artist of the year“ in three consecutive years and in 2010 won the prestigious Gramophone Award as “young artist of the year”.

For her fifth recording for Sony Music and the first on the Sony Classical label, Sol Gabetta has teamed up with her own ensemble, the Cappella Gabetta, a small ensemble that plays baroque music on period instruments, which was founded by Sol Gabetta and her brother Andres Gabetta (lead violin). Sol and Andres have chosen this group of musicians so that they can make music among friends and explore works of the Baroque and Early Classical genres.

On the new album, entitled Il Progetto Vivaldi 2, Sol Gabetta and Cappella Gabetta perform beautiful Italian cello concertos. Three deservedly popular concertos composed by Antonio Vivaldi are coupled with a rarely recorded sonata by Vivaldi and a charming cello concerto by Leonardo Leo, a Neapolitan composer. The CD also includes a world premiere recording, a cello concerto by Giovanni Benedetto Platti, an Italian composer who worked in Germany between 1730 and 1763. The cello concerto by Platti was recently discovered near Würzburg in the archive of a castle of Duke of Schönborn. The Vivaldi concertos which Sol Gabetta has chosen for this recording were also discovered in this archive.

“Argentinian Sol Gabetta brings tremendous verve to five of Vivaldi’s effervescent concertos for cello in this scintillating ‘Progetto Vivaldi’ partnership…she digs into each phrase with infectious enthusiasm…” The Guardian.

“Gabetta has a ravishing tone, especially in Vivaldi's soulful slow movements. The vigorous cello pyrotechnics of the finale of the G minor, RV 416 are negotiated with bravado to spare, and the febrile edginess of the A minor's end encourages sly banter.” BBC Music Magazine, February 2012 ****

“The cello-playing Count von Schonborn provides the connecting theme for Sol Gabetta's disc; his library contains some significant Vivaldi manuscripts, including the sole source of the sonata recorded here...With its finely worked contrapuntal tuttis and picturesque, melancholy Adagio, [Platti's] Concerto, in this vigorous, poised performance, proves to be a real find.” Gramophone Magazine, December 2011

“Gabetta again plays with unerring precision, but also with a sure-footed interpretative authority...As before, it is the fertility of imagination undergirding every one of Gabetta's performances which marks this colelction out as being something exceptional...Highly recommended.” International Record Review, January 2012

Cecilia Bartoli (mezzo), Sol Gabetta (cello)

Cappella Gabetta, Andres Gabetta

Cecilia Bartoli and Sol Gabetta – two of the most captivating women in classical music – are joining together for a new album ‘Dolce Duello’ to be released on Decca Classics on 10th November. It is a collection of Baroque masterpieces which showcase the stunning combination of voice and cello in a series of dazzling duels and wondrous arias. To coincide with the release, Bartoli and Gabetta will be performing on a European tour with Cappella Gabetta and conductor and violinist Andrés Gabetta.

‘Dolce Duello’ covers almost a century of music. The new album features works by Antonio Vivaldi, George Frideric Handel, Domenico Gabrielli, Tomaso Albinoni and Luigi Boccherini, as well as three world premiere recordings: Nicola Antonio Porpora’s ‘Giusto Amor, tu che m’accendi’ from the serenata Gli orti esperidi, and two compositions by Antonio Caldara – ‘Fortuna e speranza’ from his opera Nitocri and ‘Tanto, e con sì gran piena’ from Gianguir. The composers of these works make a variety of requirements on their soloists, demanding equal commitment from both singer and instrumentalist – engaging them in a friendly duel. If the concerto is the most elaborate and extended of musical duels, the 18th century’s obbligato aria, with its pugnacious instrumental solo part, is easily the most spectacular.

From the dawn of the Baroque, the voice and cello were inseparable companions, whether they appeared together for practical reasons (the cello being part of the continuo) or for expressive purposes. The sound of the cello is often considered to be the closest to the human voice, one elegantly complimenting the other. But when they are pitted against each other something extraordinary happens – the cello pushes the voice to its physical limits, while the singer demands raw emotion from wood and strings as if it were nature’s own instrument. Reflected in the music of ‘Dolce Duello’ is the great friendship between Bartoli and Gabetta. They have known each other for years and had long been looking for a project to collaborate on. Together with a musicologist, they unearthed some beautiful works for voice and cello – three of which had never been recorded before. There are touching laments, as in Handel’s Ode for St Cecilia’s Day, as well as more energetic arias such as ‘Di verde ulivo’ by Vivaldi. Bartoli and Gabetta sparkle when they play together.

While it may be an album of duels, the true winner is surely the listener – who can bask in the joyous music from two wondrous women. ‘Dolce Duello’ is full of sweet treats for every taste.

Sol Gabetta (cello)

Cappella Gabetta, Andres Gabetta

Sol Gabetta is the most famous and best-selling female cellist worldwide.

Her brilliant and emotional playing and her great stage presence and charming nature made her a real star of today´s classical music scene.

For "Il progetto Vivaldi 3" she again teams up with her baroque music ensemble Cappella Gabetta, founded by her and her brother Andrés Gabetta who is the concertmaster of this ensemble.

For this new CD Sol and the Cappella Gabetta recorded three beautiful cello concertos by Antonio Vivaldi but also breathtaking baroque cello concertos which have been rarely recorded and heard before. The cello concerto by Fortunato Chelleri (1690-1757) is a world premiere recording.

The cello concertos by Giovanni B. Platti (1697?-1763), Andrea Teodoro Zani (1696-1757), and Fortunato Chelleri (1690-1757) were hidden in an archive in Schloss Wiesentheid, a castle near Wuerzburg in Bavaria/Germany. These gems of baroque music were discovered when Sol was looking for interesting new repertoire. All these works were commissioned by the duke of Schloss Wiesentheid who played cello himself and hired these Italian composers.

Sol used two different cellos to play this splendid baroque music: her Guadagini cello from 1759 (with gut strings) and her Gagliano from 1781. The Cappella Gabetta plays on authentic instruments as well.
