The Argentinian cellist Sol Gabetta made her Philharmoniker debut at the 2014 Easter Festival in Baden-Baden with Edward Elgar’s Cello Concerto, the final great work of the composer. The conductor and orchestra also performed the prelude to Wagner’s Lohengrin, György Ligeti’s orchestral piece Atmosphères and Igor Stravinsky’s Le Sacre du Printemps, a work which is entirely focused on the future and pushes the boundaries of classical music in terms of sound, rhythm and energy.
György Ligeti: Atmosphères
Richard Wagner: Prelude to Act 1 from Lohengrin
Edward Elgar: Cello Concerto in E minor, Op. 85
Igor Stravinsky: Le Sacre du Printemps
