About

Solitude – works for Baroque cello solo, performed by the young Slovak cellist Michal Stahel on a period instrument made by Antony Posch in Vienna in the 1720s.

Besides solo sonatas, capriccios and toccatas by Domenico Galli, Domenico Gabrielli, Joseph Marie Clemens Dall' Abaco and Francesco Paolo Supriano, and the Suite No. 5 for cello solo by Johann Sebastian Bach, Michal Stahel also performs his own works written in the Baroque manner, such as La folia, 7 Variations in D minor for Cello solo.

The Arpeggio in G minor for violoncello solo in scordatura and Song of Solitude are based on texts for the oratorio Maddalena ai piedi di Cristo by Antonio Caldara (1670-1736).

Michal Stahel closely cooperates with personalities within the world of ancient music, such as Steven Stubbs, Skip Sempé, Simon Standage, Amandine Bayer, Ricardo Minasi, Enrico Onofri, Martin Haselböck, Marek Štryncl, Miloš Valent and Peter Zajíček. He regularly performs with ensembles Freiburger Barockorchester, Wiener Akademie, Ensemble 1756, LEclisse, Das Neue Orchester, Capriccio Stravagante, Haydn Sinfonietta Wien, Academia Montis Regalis, Collegium Marianum Prague, Solamente Naturali and Musica Aeterna.

Stahel plays a valuable, restored baroque violoncello made by Anton Posch in Vienna c.1720, which has been kindly lent to him by Esterházy Foundation Eisenstadt.
