Deutsche Grammophon has today announced the signing of 25 year old Persian-Austrian cello virtuoso, VC Artist Kian Soltani.

Kian’s debut album, entitled ‘HOME’, will be released on the yellow label in January 2018 with pianist Aaron Pilsan - and will feature recital works by Schubert and Schumann and a newly commissioned ‘Persian Folks Songs’ suite for cello and piano by Iranian composer Reza Vail.

“I am just incredibly thrilled …” Kian has told The Violin Channel.

“I grew up on both Schubert and Schumann … they are both very close to home for me … so I felt they were the ideal place for me to begin my recording discography …” the former 1st prize winner at the Antonio Janigro, Karl Davidoff and Paulo International Cello Competitions has said.

“I also feel very strongly about expanding the cello repertoire, which is why I felt a strong desire to commission this exciting new work … I couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome.”
