OUT NOW | VC Artist Cellist Kian Soltani's New Feature on All-Debussy CD

Released on Deutsche Grammophon, other artists on the disc include Daniel and Michael Barenboim, Martha Argerich, and the Staatskapelle Berlin


This all-Debusy album brings together live performances and recorded works from 2018 and includes the rarely-performed “Fantaisie” for piano and orchestra.

“On this particular recording, I played Debussy's Cello Sonata with Daniel Barenboim," VC Artist Kian Soltani told The Violin Channel.

“The sonata is a live performance from June 3, 2018 (my 26th birthday)! There was a special energy that night in the Boulez Saal in Berlin, so I’m glad it was captured as such a nice memory,” he added.

The idea of the album came from Daniel Barenboim and most of its pieces are live performances — a collection of works that according to Soltani, “fit nicely into the French theme.”

At the time of the recordings, Soltani was playing on a “Gofriller” cello that he had for a couple of months. The Debussy album stands as one of the only albums recorded with that particular instrument.

Soltani hopes that “the amazing colors of Debussy’s music” will capture listeners in the same way that they captured him.
