“Sol Gabetta’s recital...was one which combined an interesting and rewarding choice of music with outstanding artistry, musically and technically.” The Scotsman

Argentine cellist Sol Gabetta, a Grammy Award nominee renowned for her charismatic artistry, has blazed an impressive trail since she won her first competition at the age of 10, becoming one of Europe’s most sought-after soloists. Praised for her “wit, aristocratic poise and elegance; mercurial shifts of mood, intensity and lightness of touch in near-miraculous balance” (The Glasgow Herald), Gabetta makes her electrifying Santa Barbara debut accompanied by pianist Alessio Bax, whose lyrical, insightful playing “quivers with an almost hypnotic intensity” (Gramophone).
