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.

“I don’t know India, but I dream of discovering it, travelling to its different cities and regions, meeting people, taking time with them to share my Odyssey, recording sounds together, then incorporating this raw material into the Odyssey and its soundtrack.

Each venue hosting a performance would thus become the home of its own Odyssey: the Odyssey for that place and those people. My wish is for the sounds, narratives, songs, all the things that I cannot yet imagine, to take their place in my odyssey and meet the voice of my cello.”
