La Voce del violoncello

La Voce del violoncello explores the inventive repertoire of the first great Italian cello composers. Composers such as Dall'Abaco, Supriani, Vitali, Ruvo, Colombi and Galli were able to contribute to the corpus of works for solo cello with a style refined by their in-depth knowledge of the instrument. 

With the exception of a detour to the unmissable J.-S. Bach, cellist Elinor Frey offers a program that is almost tutto italiano, satisfying both the desire to hear the great works of the repertoire and the curiosity of the audience. The concert will take place outdoors, in the magnificent setting of the Jardin de Silice.
