Polifonie International Music Masterclass


Associazione Culturale Polifonie organizes the first edition of the Polifonie International Music Masterclass, a high-profile didactic project dedicated to young talented musicians and university students from all over the world.

The idea was born thanks to the persistent desire of Associazione Culturale Polifonie to make room to young people and culture, offering a High Music Specialization Course to young talents from all over the world, as well as concerts open to the locals, in order to support the spread of culture and music also through this experience in Como’s territory.

This year’s High Specialization Music Masterclass is dedicated to the Cello and appointed to the capable hands of Matias de Oliveira Pinto, a Brazilian, worldwide renowned, musician based in Germany. It will take place from October, 29th to November, 5th 2022.

The classes will take place in Cernobbio (CO), a town next to Como, at the Sala Polifunzionale of the Cernobbio municipality and in the museum house Villa Bernasconi, where, on November 3rd, an entire day of open classes will take place and where the students will perform in a concert open to the public a program based on the cello solo repertoire, with a focus on contemporary repertoire.

Two Prize-concerts will be awarded to the most deserving student, chosen by a jury chaired by the professor himself:

  • A concerto for cello and orchestra, offered by Associazione Culturale Polifonie, which will take place in Como in the 2023 season, in collaboration with the Franz Terraneo Orchestra (repertoire for cello and chamber orchestra)
  • A cello solo recital, kindly offered by the Fondazione La Società dei Concerti di Milano, which will be included in the 2023/2024 Season.
