Schumann is the new album from the critically acclaimed, Grammy nominated cellist Sol Gabetta. This recording features a recording of Schumann's cello concerto with the renowned Kammerorchester Basel under the direction of Giovanni Antonini. Sol Gabetta also teams up with the wonderful French pianist, Bertrand Chamayou to record Fantasy Pieces op. 73, the Adagio and Allegro op. 70 and the Five Pieces in Folk Style op. 102.  Sol Gabetta has performed at many prestigious venues across the globe including Wigmore Hall in London, Lucerne, Verbier, Schwetzingen and Rheingau festivals, Schubertiade Schwarzenberg and Beethovenfest Bonn. Gabetta has received many awards including the Herbert von Karajan prize awarded at the Salzburg Easter Festival and the Gramophone Young Artist of the Year Award in 2010.

"She makes a remarkable case for her re-viewing of the Cello Concerto, which emerges as nervous, mercurial, more brilliantly lateral in its thinking than in any other recording I can remember. Even the orchestration seems more incisive, more in keeping with the cello's thought-processes under Giovanni Antonini's sympathetic direction, and with the less plush, more wiry and transparent sound of the period instruments…Her fascinatingly fresh approach needs to be experienced. Your conception of Schumann may never be quite the same again." BBC Music

"The microphones focus intently on Gabetta's Guadagnini in the Concerto, intimately capturing the instrument's rich, throaty tone…Chamayou is beautifully responsive in the chamber works." Gramophone
