“You, poet, at the obscure universe
Always stare, for us you grasp it and frame
In clear words and pleasing verse…”
The cellist who approaches the web in looking for information often has the sensation of being right in the “obscure universe” mentioned by Giovanni Pascoli in one of his most famous poems.
The information that is in front of me is so many, so many … definitely too many, and often so confusing and contradictory that it really makes him lose his bearings.
From this consideration comes mycello.it, a site dedicated to the cello that transforms the “obscure universe” of the web into “clear word”, a site that allows cellists to quickly and effectively reach the information they seek.
Information on competitions, festivals, auditions, sheet music and repertoire, and even interviews and columns on history and current events.
A site that is based in Bergamo, a small, wonderful Italian city, the birthplace of great musicians such as Alfredo Piatti, Gaetano Donizetti, Pietro Antonio Locatelli.
A site to visit, a site to return to, and above all a site to use.
Luca Lodetti. A great music lover, he has devoted every free minute to listening to music since he was a teenager. Collect LPs first and then CDs, and soon become a true high fidelity expert. At first, he listens to every kind of music but then begins to orient himself more, and more decisively, towards classical music. He regularly follows concerts, especially of chamber music, and little by little he is fascinated by one instrument in particular: the cello. So, after various work experiences, he decided to take advantage of the managerial and organizational skills he acquired to transform his passion for classical music, and in particular for cello music, into a full-time activity, creating the website mycello.it
Annalisa Barzanò. After graduating in Modern Literature and having obtained a Conservatory diploma in Piano, she continues her studies at the School of Paleography and Musical Philology of Cremona where she graduates with honors in Musicology. He discusses a thesis about the cellist Alfredo Piatti, after two years of patient research work in libraries and archives throughout Europe, during which she reconstructs the biographical events of the great cellist from Bergamo, the catalog of his works, and the programs of nearly 500 concerts. In 1996 he publishes the first modern biography of Alfredo Piatti and the following year she is one of the founding members of the Alfredo Piatti Association, within which she begins to devote himself to the research and enhancement of cellist compositions of every era and style. In 2001, on the occasion of the centenary of Piatti’s death, her biography of Alfredo Piatti is published in English and German by the Kronberg Academy. Within a few years, she thus became a reference scholar for cellists from all over the world, who turned to her for advice on new, original, and popular concert programs. Since 2006, she is one of the souls of the “Alfredo Piatti” International Cellist Festival, held in Bergamo every year in November.
