For this Sunday Classics season opener, Gabetta joins the Basel Symphony Orchestra for Saint Saëns’ Cello Concerto. Considered by Shostakovich and Rachmaninov to be the greatest of all cello concertos, it is also among the most demanding for the soloist, so you can expect high octane musical gymnastics!

Switzerland’s oldest and most innovative symphony orchestra conclude the programme with one of Beethoven’s most celebrated, large-scale masterworks: the ‘Eroica’. Marking the beginning of the composer’s creative middle-period, this, the third of Beethoven's symphonic output, started of it's life as a celebration of Napoleon and his humanist ideals, but turned in to the epitome of symphonic forms.
