Sonia Wieder-Atherton is today’s most gifted and well-known French cellist. Following her Mediterranean Odyssey, Sonia Wieder-Atherton now brings her talent and creativity to India. Absorbing a landscape of sounds recorded in situ into her performance of classical pieces, she explores the question of how the world resonates in music. Each venue hosting a performance would thus become the home of its own Odyssey: the Odyssey for that place and those people.
She has always used music as a language open to the world. It is a personal quest that, over the years, has taken her from one repertory to another, from one discovery to the next, in an unbroken process of exploration. In 2011, she won the Bernheim Foundation Arts Prize, one of the Foundation’s three annual awards to individuals whose work is deemed to be of creative value in the fields of the arts, literature and science.
