Following a series of spellbinding international debuts, Sol Gabetta has seen a meteoric rise to her current status as a leading cello virtuoso. After captivating audiences with her “rich musical personality” (New York Times) at Mostly Mozart in 2015, the charismatic soloist returns to Lincoln Center for a recital steeped in her trademark “wit, aristocratic poise and elegance” (Herald, U.K.) with Chopin’s melodic marvel, the Cello Sonata in G minor, at its heart.

“Gabetta’s dramatic sweep—her bow high up above her head on the final note—struck me like an arrow pointing to the future.” Bachtrack
“[Gabetta] commands the sort of technique that unravels even the fiercest knot with apparently nonchalant savoir-faire.” Financial Times
