Conductor: Sir Simon Rattle
Artist: Sol Gabetta, cello; Berliner Philharmoniker
• The Argentinian cellist Sol Gabetta made her Philharmoniker debut at the 2014 Easter Festival in Baden-Baden with Edward Elgar’s Cello Concerto, the final great work of the composer. “Sol Gabetta’s Elgar Concerto is one of the best around, a heartfelt, tonally rounded performance.” (Gramophone ). The orchestra and conductor also performed the prelude to Wagner’s Lohengrin, Gyorgy Ligeti’s orchestral piece Atmospheres and Igor Stravinsky’s Le Sacre du Printemps, a work which is entirely focused on the future and pushes the boundaries of classical music in terms of sound, rhythm and energy.
• Sir Simon Rattle and the Berliner Philharmoniker contrasted the prelude to Wagner’s Lohengrin and Gyorgy Ligeti’s orchestral piece Atmospheres perfectly, demonstrating that they both employ different styles to pursue a similar objective – an iridescent, otherworldly sound.
• Star cellist Sol Gabetta gave an outstanding interpretation of Elgar’s Cello Concerto: the final great work of the composer, full of melancholy and a sense of farewell.
• In contrast to Elgar, Igor Stravinsky’s Le Sacre du Printemps is focused on the future. In their previous performances, the Berliner Philharmoniker and Simon Rattle have shown that this work, despite its inherent modernity, also provides a wealth of sensual pleasure. “The musicians breezed through the Sacre with ridiculous virtuosity, as laid-back as if it were a mambo on a dance floor on a Caribbean beach.”
