Direction - Baroque Cello –5 strings Violoncello Piccolo
giordano antonelliGiordano Antonelli, former pupil of the great russian cellist Ivan Monighetti, has attended a master of early music interpretation and baroque cello at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis with Christophe Coin. In 1993 he has joined the Gustav Mahler Jugend Orchester, and a year later, the Prague Mozart Academy (Czech Republic), deepening the research and interpretation of the classical repertoire in the Mittel-Europa.

Since 1994, Giordano Antonelli has regularly appeared in many European music festivals, and has been invited to perform as soloist, section leader or continuo at: Baroque Orchestra of Sevilla, Orquesta Ciudad de Granada, Kammer Orchester Basel, Théatre Royale La Monnaie-Bruxelles, Baroque Orchestra of Granada, I Fiati di Parma, Prague Mozart Orchestra, il Giardino Armonico.

His interest for early music has led him to perform with directors such as Christopher Hogwood, Philippe Herreweghe, Fabio Biondi, Giovanni Antonini, Giovanni Acciai, to name just a few. From 1998 to 2003 he held the position as cello soloist at the Orquesta Ciudad de Granada (Spain).

Giordano Antonelli has founded in year 2000 the ensemble MUSICA ANTIQUA LATINA, based in Rome, specifically devoted to the early baroque repertoire. Futhermore, his scholar interest for the 5 strings violoncello piccolo, has led him to rediscover unknown masterworks of the baroque age.

The cellist L.Quandt, Konzertmeister of the Berliner Philharmoniker, wrote about him: “…Giordano Antonelli is one of the rare musicians, who are able to create links between active musicians and music scientist,s as well as to build up and to lead ensembles which perform ‘directly from the archieves’. ”
He performs on a Violoncello Piccolo P.A.Landolfi, Milano 1760.
