Argentinian cello prodigy Sol Gabetta fell in love with her instrument at an early age. Aged two and a half, she started following the Suzuki musical education method, where children focus on learning their instrument by playing by ear and being immersed in a musical environment. Her parents realised that their home city did not have enough opportunities for their highly talented daughter to progress – so they moved the family to Madrid, to give Sol the best possible education. She went on to develop her talent during her studies in Switzerland and Berlin and she now enchants audiences with her performances on the world’s great stages. Her powerful, incandescent tone conveys beauty and confidence, whatever the situation.
