Thank you for your understanding.
Evangeline Benedetti — Teacher, cellist
Danielle Akta — Cellist
The great American cellist Evangeline Benedetti works with Danielle Akta on Piatti's Caprice No. 1, Op. 25 in a master class at the Villa Sandra Lesa.
Called "the Paganini of the cello" by Franz Liszt, the virtuoso 19th century Lombardian cellist Carlo Alfredo Piatti is celebrated to this day for his twelve Caprices for Solo Cello, Op. 25. Although they were envisaged as challenging developmental etudes, their sophisticated musicality and vibrant character have given them a place in the cello repertoire alongside works like Bach's Cello Suites.
