Stefano Veggetti (Cello, Conductor)

Born: Italy

The Italian cellist and conductor, 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 Bylsma.

Since then, Stefano Veggetti has played as a soloist and in chamber music ensembles with musicians who are specialized on period instruments - including Anner Bylsma, Stanley Ritchie, Alfredo Bernardini, Ottavio Dantone, L'Archibudelli, L'Astrée, Erich Höbarth, Rachel Podger, Jos van Immerseel, Anima Eterna Brugge - in Europe, Mexico, Canada and the USA. He has appeared on both radio and television (RAI, Italy; ORF, RDF, Germany; RDP Antena2 Portugal,, etc) and has recorded for Nuova Era (Italy), Opus 111 (France), and Accent. Over the past years of his musical activity HE has been unanimously appreciated for his highly accurate, virtuosic playing, outstanding musicianship and understanding of period style, and a warm and decidedly non-stuffy stage presence.

In 2000, Stefano Veggetti founded his own group Ensemble Cordia, with whom he has worked on newly discovered chamber and orchestral music from the Baroque and Classical eras, , which will be recorded by the label Brilliant. He has made solo appearances at the Vienna Konzerthaus, the Settimane Musicali di Stresa and Bachfest Leipzig, I Concerti del Quirinale, Rome, Utrecht Early Music Festival. Since 2014 he collaborated with Anima Eterna as principal cello toured extensively all over Europe and Mexico and took part in the Schubetiade project recording Schubert Arpeggione and Troute quintet with Midori Seiler and Jos van Immerseel.

Teaching forms a significant part of Stefano Veggetti’s musical life. He has taught for more than a decade Baroque cello at the Conservatory in Verona and at various master-classes across Europe and he is currently Artistic Director of the Academy of Ancient Music in Bruneck. He plays on a cello by Nicola Gagliano (1737), the ‘ex Oblach’, which is kindly provided to him by the courtesy of Baronessa Mariuccia Zerilli-Marimo.
