ArtistsGabriel Schwabe (cello)
ORF Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra
Gabriel Schwabe has established himself among the leading cellists of his generation. He is a laureate of numerous national and international competitions, including the Grand Prix Emanuel Feuermann and the Concours Rostropovich in Paris. In 2009 he won the prestigious Pierre Fournier Award in London. As a soloist, he has worked with orchestras such as the Philharmonia Orchestra, NDR Radiophilharmonie, Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra, Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlinthe Malmö and Norrköping Symphony Orchestras and Royal Northern Sinfonia with conductors including Marek Janowski, Eivind Gullberg Jensen, Dennis Russell Davies, Cornelius Meister, Marc Soustrot, Lars Vogt and Michael Sanderling.
Gabriel Schwabe made his recording debut in 2015 performing Brahms’s Cello Sonatas, and six songs arranged for cello and piano, with pianist Nicholas Rimmer (8573489). Fanfare wrote that ‘Schwabe plays with a beautifully smooth and sweet tone. In addition, his intonation and finger-to-bow coordination are spot-on’, which led to Nordwestradio exclaiming that ‘even Brahms himself would like this [album].’
His Saint-Saëns - Works for Cello and Orchestra disc (8573737) was a Gramophone Choice: ‘[Schwabe] plays with a light heart and produces a light, airy tone to match, combined with a nonchalance and poise that I found most attractive.’
Schwabe’s latest Naxos releases include Brahms’s Double Concerto (8573772) with violinist Tianwa Yang; and Kodály and Ligeti’s Solo Cello Sonatas, as well as Kodály’s Duo for Violin and Cello performed with Hellen Weiß (8574202). The WholeNote exclaimed: ‘cellist Gabriel Schwabe is in simply superb form’.
Conductor Christopher Ward is currently general music director at Theater Aachen and Sinfonieorchester Aachen. In 2019 he conducted the world premiere of Jörg Widmann’s Babylon at the Staatsoper Unter den Linden, Berlin. He has recorded the orchestral works of Hans Rott under the Capriccio label.
