There are some pieces which seem to fit the personality of the player perfectly.
Jacqueline du Pré's recordings of the Elgar cello concerto continue to stand the test of time and the recordings on this disk seem to equally suit Sol Gabetta's deft touch.

This is currently my favourite recording of the Haydn cello concerto with a light, but convincing tone. The cadenza's are flamboyant without being overly showy and the contrast between the bouncier first and third movements with the sweetness of tone during the second works keeps interest.

The Hofmann concerto stands out too for the brilliance of touch. The upper registers in particular have a violin like brilliance which doesn't often present itself from a cello.

In a word, awesome.

Format: Audio CD
This is a very enjoyable disc of cello music. Sol Gabetta is a very good cellist and I really like her interpretations of all three of the concerti here, and she meets the immense technical demands of these works with a very impressive technique and real flair. In the Haydn cello concerto - in my view the one truly great work on this disc - she gives a fine, personal performance which I enjoyed very much. While perhaps not as weighty and intense as, say, Jacqueline du Pré or Paul Tortelier, there is plenty of substance here and a quite thrilling dash and verve where appropriate. The Hofmann and Mozart concerti are fine works too, but they have a rather lighter air about them and Ms Gabetta gives them a delightful and wholly appropriate lightness of step which is very appealing.

The Kammerorchester Basel under Sergio Ciomei are terrific, bringing real life to these concerti and complementing the solo playing beautifully, and the recorded sound is excellent. My one small reservation about this disc is the Mozart concerto. It is an adaptation of the Flute Concerto K314 and while in principle I think this is a good idea, I'm not sure this concerto was the right one to adapt. I can't quite put my finger on why and it may just be that I've never been that keen on the flute concerto as a work, but it just doesn't seem to sit quite right as a cello concerto. I wonder whether one of the violin concerti might have been a better choice.

Minor personal reservations aside, this is a disc of extremely enjoyable music, very well played. Recommended.

I recently heard Gabetta in concert, and she is electrifying. One of the pieces she played, a Beethoven work for piano and cello, familiar to me, I'd already heard, enjoyably, at another live concert, and with a different cellist. All I can say, with Gabetta, is that I felt that in fact, I'd never heard the piece before, because it suddenly made total sense in a way I hadn't previously experienced. Cello and piano were having a conversation with each other which was fresh, dynamic and new. She brings warmth, vibrancy, intelligence, passion, great musicality and heart into her playing.

As another reviewer has mentioned, in the first piece, the Hoffman, at times the cello has a sweetness, shimmer and shine more commonly found in the violin. The Haydn sounds - young! There's a freshness, a romantic lyricism to her rendition, a quality of innocence and joyousness. As at that live concert, listening to her is to smile, more and more with happiness that such music exists, and that someone can delight the listener afresh with it

This is a wonderful recording, Gabetta's cello itself has a gorgeous, lush, rich, warm tone; she clearly loves her cello, loves the music her cello sings and I can almost believe that her particular cello is a sentient creature with soul!

The Mozart piece feels a little like an `album filler', and is anyway a piece scored for the flute, here adapted for the cello. And it begs the question `why?' If Mozart scored it for the flute, that is where it is meant to be heard, played by flautist and orchestra, not by cellist and orchestra. Perfectly pleasant but not as immediately grabbing this listener as the other pieces, which are specifically scored for the cello. So lovely and right are the first two pieces that I'm unable to dock a star for what seems like a less inspired programming choice

I'm now busily acquiring more Gabetta recordings for my library.
