Sollima and the ACO

Giovanni Sollima
Sketched while he played at the
Maribor Festival, 2011
The ACO is touring with crack cellist Giovanni Sollima. I saw them last week and they give a concert you will never forget. If you have a chance to see them, then do go.

Sollima and his cello are the most extraordinary phenomenon, welded together they sing and cry and poke fun. You watch and listen, laugh and cry and fall into a swoon.

If you need more convincing, here is a link to Sollima playing a piece he wrote and plays with Monika Leskovar.
