On the bridge

ON THE BRIDGE Cello Ensemble was born in 2019 as an educational project of Stefano Cerrato’s teaching class. Its members are young career musicians that come from different musical backgrounds, all with a lot of experience in chamber music. The name of the ensemble ironically refers to the innumerable times the teacher asked his students to play at the bridge thus getting a more projected sound (in this case extremely projected, playing “on” the bridge). The ensemble debuted for the prestigious International Music Festival in Portogruaro (Venice). In 2020 the first album of the ensemble, Vocal Chords, has been released: it is about a path that links old to modern and contemporary music, through famous or less known original pieces, philological transcriptions, and world premieres.
