18-20 Oct. Cellist Sol Gabetta plays Lalo's cello concerto for Rome's Accademia Nazionale di S. Cecilia over three evenings, from 18-20 October.
Gabetta does not often perform this concerto because, as she explains, orchestras find it a “tricky” piece without the standard concerto structure, putting the soloist centre stage with much more freedom than usual.
She says that it therefore requires an exceptional conductor who is constantly sensitive to the needs and timings of both orchestra and soloist.
The programme also includes Tchaikovsky's Romeo e Giulietta and Sibelius symphony no 2. The orchestra and chorus of S. Cecilia are conducted by Mikko Franck.
