Classical music fans are in for another huge treat, when one of the world’s leading cellists Sol Gabetta joins the Dresden Philharmonic Orchestra at Middlesbrough Town Hall next Tuesday. (13 October).

Founded in 1870, the orchestra has previously been conducted by legends including Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Dvorak and Strauss.

Noted for its rich warm sound, the orchestra is still delighting audiences all over the world today.

And Sol Gabetta needs no introduction to classical fans. The Argentinian achieved international acclaim after winning the Credit Suisse Young Artist Award in 2014 and making her debut with the Vienna Philharmonic.

She’s now firmly established as one of today’s greatest cellists, performing with a string of leading orchestras and conductors all over the world.

The orchestra is the first of the Town Hall’s major international visitors of the new classical season, thanks to funding from Arts Council England.
