Rocco Filippini

Rocco Filippini was born in Lugano. He completed his musical studies under Pierre Fournier and in 1964 he won the International Competition of Geneva, after which he soon began his career as a concert cellist. His repertory ranges from 17th century music to the most daring expressions of contemporary music. He has played worldwide for the most important musical institutions in Europe, America, Japan and Australia, performing in many of the foremost concert halls (La Scala in Milan, Albert Hall and Festival Hall in London, Théâtre des Champs-Élysées in Paris, Berlin Philharmonie, Vienna Musikverein, Erkulessaal in Munich, Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, the Lincoln Center in New York, Sidney Opera House) and as a guest of many prestigious festivals (Lucerne, Spoleto, Marlboro, Saltzburg, Edinburgh, Helsinki, Stresa, Pesaro, Ravenna,). In 1968 he founded the "Trio di Milano" and recently the "Quartetto Accardo", intensifying his activity as a conductor at the head of a number of important ensembles, such as the Chamber Orchestra of Padova and Veneto, the Chamber Orchestra of Mantova, the Santa Cecilia Chamber Orchestra and that of the  "Pomeriggi Musicali" of Milan, the Verdi Orchestra,  the Scarlatti Orchestra of Naples, the Filarmonica of Turin and others. Cello teacher at the Giuseppe Verdi Conservatory in Milan for 25 years, since 2003 he has been teacher of the specialization course in ensemble music at the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia. In 1985 he founded the Accademia Stauffer Courses in Cremona together with Salvatore Accardo, Bruno Giuranna and Franco Petracchi. He is a member of the Academy of the European Mozart Foundation and he frequently holds master classes at the Fiesole School, amongst others. In 1997 he has received the Italian-Switzerland Bank Centenary Foundation Award for his contribution to the development of cultural relations between Switzerland and Italy. Some of the foremost contemporary composers, among whom Luciano Berio, Franco Donatoni and Salvatore Sciarrino, have dedicated some of their compositions to him. He plays an Antonio Stradivari's Gore Booth Cello (1719), one of the most valuable instruments in the history of lute-craftsmanship. He is Accademico Effettivo of Santa Cecilia.
