In August, Sol performs concerts in Switzerland, Austria, Germany and France. She begins the month with a tour alongside violinist Veronika Eberle and viola player, Antoine Tamestit. The musicians bring their programme of Beethoven’s Duet in E-flat major for Viola and Cello WoO. 32 (“Duett mit zwei obligaten Augengläsern”), and String Trio in G Major, op. 9, no. 1, and Dohnányi’s Serenade for String Trio in C Major, op. 10 interspersed with intermezzi by J.S. Bach and miniatures by György Kurtág, to various festivals including the Gstaad Festival in Saanen, Klosters Music Festival, Rheingau Festival in Ingelheim and the Pablo Casals Festival in Prades.
