Thanks to the support from the Banca del Monte di Lombardia, which has sustained the Solisti di Pavia project since 2001, the Pavia Cello Academy will be able to host a Principal Class of 8 cellists.
Students of Principal Class shall have the opportunity to work the cello repertoire with Enrico Dindo as well as participating during the academic year in three Master Classes given by world renowned cellists
Assistant Teachers Jacopo Di Tonno and Andrea Agostinelli will take care of a second pre-class.
Over the years several great teachers took turns at the head of the class in the splendid setting of the Sala degli Affreschi in the Collegio Borromeo: Antonio Mosca, Frans Helmerson, Giovanni Sollima, Asier Polo, Gustav Rivinius, Antonio Meneses, Maria Kliegel, Rocco Filippini, Gary Hoffman, Young-Chang Cho, Massimo Polidori, Thomas Demenga, Gabriele Geminiani, Emil Rovner and Jens Peter Maintz.
For 2021 we are proud to have three great teachers with us again: FRANS HELMERSON, JENS PETER MAINTZ and ASIER POLO. The Academy also aims to endow itself with a library dedicated to the cello repertoire and to dedicate itself to the research of original manuscripts. The city of Pavia thus becomes a cello international center.
