Cellist Kian Soltani has options of where to rest up from his busy touring schedule, which includes playing with such orchestras as the Vienna Philharmonic and Boston Symphony and such musical luminaries as pianist Daniel Barenboim and violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter.
“Home base for me is several places,” said Soltani, who headlines La Jolla Music Society’s concert Sunday at The Conrad’s Baker-Baum Concert Hall. “One of them is Zurich, Switzerland, one of them is Vienna, Austria, and one of them is Berlin, Germany. And, of course, my parents’ house in Bregenz, Austria, which borders Switzerland. But Europe is not (that) big, so central Europe is my home base. It’s a wonderful place.”
