Meet VC Artist - Kian Soltani

Bookmark and Share

VC Artist Kian Soltani has in recent years firmly established an international reputation as one of the new generation's most prodigious young concert artists. The 26 year old Persian-Austrian cello virtuoso has in recent years been praised for his technical mastery and profound, mature conviction.

Soltani recently toured as the featured soloist with the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, performing Strauss' Don Quixote – under the direction of luminary conductor Daniel Barenboim. He currently performs on a 1680 Grancino cello – on generous loan from the Merito String Instrument Trust. Highlights of his 2017/18 season include performances at the Alte Oper Frankfurt, Philharmonie de Paris, Royal Festival Hall London, Kölner Philharmonie, Boulez Saal Berlin, Prinzregententheater Munich, Oslo Konserthus and the Hohenems Schubertiade – as well as appearances at the Salzburg, Verbier, Lucerne and Aix-en- Provence Easter Festivals.
