Exclusive: violinist Veronika Eberle, violist Antoine Tamestit and cellist Sol Gabetta in a short interview

In a short series, we ask our artists what they think about our motto “Sehnsucht Natur. Musical Landscapes”

What was your most impressive experience of nature? 

Antoine Tamestit: Hiking through the Kruger National Park in South Africa. And flying over the fjords of New Zealand.

Sol Gabetta: I was particularly impressed by Australia.

Veronika Eberle: My journey to Namibia. Where the rough ocean and the dry red sand desert merge directly into each other, where the horizons are so wide that they reflect infinity and the animals show remarkable gentleness and strength at the same time.

What do you like to do in nature? 

Veronika Eberle: Sinking into it. I love being in nature. In all kinds of activities and moments of peace. It gives me an infinite amount of strength.

Sol Gabetta: Being able to breathe well, I enjoy the fresh air. I seek peace and strength in nature. And can also develop visions.

Antoine Tamestit: I like hiking in the mountains and forests and touching the trees and grasses with my hands.

What landscape comes to mind when you think of your childhood? 

Antoine Tamestit: The Alps near Nice in the south of France. And the Mediterranean coast of Corsica.

Sol Gabetta: My home country Argentina – the vastness and contrasts of this country.

Veronika Eberle: A very wild forest and grass landscape with lots of insects, established lakes, forests full of mushrooms and the smell of rain in summer.
