Gaëlle Solal – 2011 GFA Recital

This is the complete collection of videos from Gaëlle’s phenomenal concert at the 2011 GFA Convention.

The programming was very interesting with two contrasting halves: Sol and Açaï. With moments ranging from dramatic intensity to absolute exuberance, Gaëlle performed with incredible energy and presence. The concert began in complete darkness and as the pieces progressed the lights came into focus. The last two videos were the two encores she gave in response to the well-deserved standing ovations.
