Giambattista Valdettaro 

He began to study the cello in Verona - his hometown - at first with Cesare Bonzanini (one of the most well-known pupils of Camillo Oblach) and then with Benedetto Mazzacurati. He graduated summa with laude at theConservatorio “San Pietro a Majella” in Naples. He perfected with Willy La Volpe in Naples and with Pierre Fournier in Zurich.
He started his career with a tour in the U.S.A and Canada as first cello of the “San Pietro a Majella” Chamber Orchestra directed by Renato Ruotolo. In this tour he had a soloist role.
As a solo artist he played in Europe and in Italy with different Chamber orchestras and he also played as a soloist with the orchestra with many directors such as Gabriele Gandini, Umberto Cattini, Angelo Campori, Wolfgang Schneidt, Piero Bellugi.
He has been playing in a duo with the pianist Ines Scarlino since 1971 performing concerts in Italy and abroad. Throughout his chamber music activity he cooperated with innumerable important Italian and foreign partners. He’s been first cello in many important Italian Orchestras among which Pomeriggi Musicali of Milan, Filarmonica Veneta, Orchestra del Teatro La Fenice in Venice.
He published in 1987 a revision of the Bach Suites for Solo Cello with the editor Zaniboni (in 2003 the publishing house Armelin republished it). He played the complete version during the Peñiscola Festival in Spain (1991), the Engelberg Festival in Switzerland (1992) and at the Florence Symphonietta in Florence in 1994.
In 1998 a version of the suites produced by Sicut Sol Editrice and distributed by the magazine Fedeltà del Suono was released and acclaimed by eminent critics (CD classics, Amadeus).
He taught cello at the Conservatory in Padua from 1971 up to 2009.
He plays a venetian cello of the 18th Century attributed to a maker of the school of Montagnana.
With this same instrument he recorded this record using two bows built by Walter Barbiero.

Zoltàn Kodàly (Kecskemét 1882 - Budapest 1967) 

He is together with Béla Bartòk the most eminent Hungarian composer of the first half of the 20th Century. He is a scholar of the Hungarian folklore as Bartòk was. In 1951 he edits the national edition of the Corpus Musicae Popularis Hungaricae.
In this work too the folkloristic material is developed in the three parts of this sonata partially in a rhapsodic way and partially with a greater rhythmic articulation taking advantage of the characteristics of the instrument.

Bernhard Cossmann (Dessau 1822 - Francoforte sul Meno 1910) 

He is a German virtuoso appointed in 1860 professor at the Conservatory in Moscow. He is considered the forefather of the Russian school of violin. He was professor in Frankfurt in 1878. He was also a friend of the Italian cello player Alfredo Piatti that dedicated to him his famous twelve Capricci.

Luigi Dallapiccola (Pisino, Istria 1904 - Firenze 1975) 

He has a Central European background but moves to Florence in 1922 and ends his course of study there with Vito Frazzi. He remains in Florence all life long. In the ‘40’s he switches to dodecaphony and becomes one of the major representatives of this musical composition in Italy.
His friendship with Gaspar Cassadò brought to the creation of two works: Ciaccona, Intermezzo and Adagio for Solo Cello (1945) and Dialoghi for Cello and Orchestra (1960).
The poetic meaning of Ciaccona, Intermezzo and Adagio is disclosed by the note at the end of the last part; the author writes: September 1945 DEO GRATIAS. In this work in fact there seems to be a summary of recent tragedy; the first two parts are characterized by a relentless drama that continuously stands out (interrupted only by short and lighter moments),then in the Adagio the slow fifth intervals (pianissimo, senza colore, says Dallapiccola) give the sense of an absolute emptiness: the debris from which, after a while, a waft of hope blows gently…
