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

A graduate of the City of Basel Music Academy and the Kronberg Academy, where he studied with Ivan Monighetti and Frans Helmerson, Kian is a former 1st prize winner at the Antonio Janigro, Karl Davidof and Paulo International Cello Competitions.

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. 

Kian 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.
