Italian Strings - Giovanni Sollima



Italian Strings - Giovanni Sollima

Giovanni Sollima is an Italian composer and cellist. He was born into a family of musicians and studied cello with Giovanni Perriera and composition with his father, Eliodoro Sollima, at the Conservatorio di Palermo, where he graduated with highest honors.

As a composer, Sollima's influences are wide ranging, taking in jazz and rock, as well as various ethnic traditions from the Mediterranean area.

“Sollima brought the house down” announced one critic after witnessing the phenomenon that is the Italian cellist Giovanni Sollima. “The audience was absolutely ecstatic.” Sounds a bit much to expect from a concert of Italian music for cello and strings? Put any preconceptions aside as Sollima unleashes all the sunshine, seduction and theatricality of his native land in a programme that spans four centuries.
