Following a powerfully mesmerising performance with the orchestra in 2011 (visit theWatch Listensection of our website to see this again), Italian cello sensationGiovanni Sollima- penned the’Jimi Hendrix of the cello’by New York’sNewsday- joins Manchester Camerata in Kendal for one of the most anticipated concerts of the season. Elgar’s virtuosic Introduction and Allegro for Strings, Schumann&s expressiveCello Concertoand Piazzolla&s emotionally rhythmicLibertangoare fitting companions for Sollima&s own work. Sollima’sFolktalesfor cello and orchestra blends contemporary, jazz and traditional, with an improvisatory structure allowing Sollima to demonstrate his incredible cello technique and rockstar energy.


A pre concert discussion will be held between Camerata’s orchestra leader Giovanni Guzzo and our new Head of Creative Programming Samantha McShane.
