About

The main work on this CD is a world premiere-recording of Peteris Vasks’ Concerto No. 2 for Cello and String Orchestra "Klātbūtne / Presence" written for Sol Gabetta and commissioned by the Amsterdam Sinfonietta. Gabetta and the orchestra premiered this work in Amsterdam on October 25th 2012 to critical acclaim. Vasks himself was closely involved in the recording of the concerto for this album, and the piece also temporarily combines Sol‘s cello with her voice in a fascinating manner. Sol Gabetta can be heard singing in the third work of the album “Gramata Cellam”, a 13-minute piece for cello solo that Gabetta has often performed as an encore at her concerts worldwide. The album also includes Vasks’ “Musique du Soir” for cello and organ, which features Sol Gabetta’s mother Irène Timacheff-Gabetta, organ, a professional organ player, performing the organ part. The album was recorded with the Amsterdam Sinfonietta, directed by their leader Candida Thompson.
