Andrés Gabetta - Chamber Music & Ensemble

The French-Argentine violinist Andrés Gabetta is considered one of the most brilliant baroque musicians of his generation.

Always in search of rich sonority and contrasting colors on period instrument, he performs as a soloist and conductor in the largest European halls such as Elb Philharmonic, Berlin Philharmonie, Musikverein Wien, the Paris Philharmonic or  the Amsterdam Concertgebouw. He also performs regularly in the biggest international festivals like the Salzburg Festival, the Gstaad Menuhin Festival, the Schleswig-Holstein Festival and the Rheingau Festival… alongside soloists such as Cecilia Bartoli, Franco Fagioli, Sol Gabetta, Julia Lezhneva, Vivica Geneaux, Simone Kermes, Giuliano Carmignola, Maurice Steger, Gabor Boldoczki, Sergej Nakariakov and Christophe Coin.

Andrés Gabetta develops an original interpretation and presentation of the famous works of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons and the Piazolla’s Seasons while exploring still unpublished pieces from the Baroque repertoire (violin concertos by Timmer, Umstatt, Ragazzi), as his highly rewarded discography testifies: Grammy nomination for Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto recordings, Prix Choc, Diapason d’Or

Noticed by Christophe Coin, Andrés Gabetta made his debut in 2004 as solo violin at the Baroque Ensemble of Limoges and then at the Basel Chamber Orchestra before creating the Cappella Gabetta in 2011. In 2017, he collaborated for the first time with Cecilia Bartoli (CD recording Dolce Duello), who immediately invites him to share the stage as a soloist with her during a European tour around Vivaldi which will be repeated in 2020. Since then, she has invited him several times a year as a soloist and conductor of his orchestra The musicians of the Prince.

As a conductor, Andrés is regularly invited to conduct baroque orchestras such as the Seville Baroque Orchestra, the Prince’s Musicians or the Versailles Orchestra.

Recently, Andrés has been appointed Ensemble and Chamber Music Professor as well as member of the Board at the Piccoli Virtuosi International Music Boarding School. He will also conduct the “Piccoli Virtuosi Capellina”.
