“Music reminds people that they have a heart. And that there are things, feelings, spirituality that transcend their minds,” is how Argentine cellist Sol Gabetta sums up the essence of what she does and how she thinks. This is also perhaps one of the essential and unique experiences that audiences always have at her concerts. With her longtime chamber music partner, French pianist Bertrand Chamayou, Sol Gabetta shares this attitude, saying: “I love playing recitals with Bertrand. We’ve known each other since we were young and we’re a wonderfully attuned duo.” For a cellist, she says, it is extremely important to find a pianist who has a clear and comprehensive knowledge of the cello repertoire. When she plays with Chamayou, they already start at a very high level, and then those wonderful, magical moments occur, the basis of which is a deep human understanding and like-minded musical sensibilities. Johannes Brahms had a very special relationship with the cello: By his own admission, he developed some skill on this instrument as an adolescent and later created two of the most important works in this genre, his two cello sonatas.
