Statement from the elegant French cellist:
Due to a shoulder injury and following my doctor’s advice, I have had to make the very difficult decision to take some time off from concert touring from now until mid-August to rest my shoulder.
I am very sad not to be able to perform the next planned concerts but I should be back soon.
The Israel Phiharmonic has replaced him in four concerts this week with the young Kian Soltani.
Gautier will also miss a two-week residency in Verbier.
