We are glad to present you the new duo : Mr.&Mrs. Cello
Mr. Massimiliano Martinelli and Mrs. Fulvia Mancini are professional Italian cellists with an intense focus on bringing classical and pop music to countries around the world. They have played the cello since they were children and have studied together in Switzerland. They were chosen by Riccardo Muti to play in his first "Luigi Cherubini" Orchestra 2005, and have played both as soloists and in chamber music groups in Asia and Europe.
Prize winners in several international competitions, they are artistic directors of the Music Festival “Regina Musica al Castello”, that took place by a beautiful Castle nearby Roma (Maenza) since July 2015. Mixing virtuosity and elegance, their playing style is passionate and intense. As teachers, they are firmly commited to helping others bring out the best in themselves through the development of excellent technique and a confident stage presence.
Review about their project can be read in the famous Italian classical newspaper, “Amadeus” (August, 2017 issue).
