Stefano Veggetti & Ensemble Cordia
Stefano Veggetti obtained his diploma as violoncellist at the Conservatory of L’ Aquila. He subsequently won a scholarship to continue his studies in Philadelphia with Orlando Cole. After returning to Europe, fascinated by the sound of period string instruments, he attended master- classes with Anner Bijlsma and has since then played as a soloist and in chamber music ensembles with musicians who are specialized on period instruments (A. Bijlsma, S. Ritchie, A. Bernardini, O. Dantone, L‘ Archibudelli, L’ Astrée) in Europe, Mexico, Canada and the USA. He has appeared on both radio and television (RAI, Italy; RDF, Germany; RDP Antena, etc) and has recorded for Nuova Era (Italy) and Opus 111 (France).
Since the year 2000, along with his Cordia Ensemble, he has worked on newly discovered chamber and orchestra music from the Baroque and Classic periods, which will be recorded by the label Brilliant. Stefano Veggetti teaches baroque cello at the Conservatory in Verona and at various master-classes across Europe and plays on the violoncello Nicola Gagliano (1737) ex Oblach, which is kindly provided to him by the courtesy of Baronessa Mariuccia Zerilli-Marimo.
