Barbara Bertoldi - Cello Music with Whimsy
Cellist Barbara Bertoldi founded a classical music ensemble in Italy called the Quartetto degli Afetti. The group is extremely active in Europe. They enjoy playing on period instruments so the audience can gain a better understanding of how the composers heard the music when originally composed. Find out more on Ms. Bertoldi's web site.
Barbara has put together some of her own songs along with her cello music to create a
children’s CD called Bestiario per Violoncello. On this CD Barbara has created songs about a frog, her neighbors, the change of seasons, her uncle and much more. A VERY personal CD about her life, friends, family and her surroundings in Trento Italy. In the frog song, the frog is on a lake where people like to swim. The people who swim in the lake enjoy great music. But the frog, is just a frog. He cannot enjoy the wonderful music the swimmers play as they enjoy the cool waters of the lake. The CD was released in November 2013.
The CD was presented in concert form in Trento, Mestre, Lawn, Monza and in the form of theatrical performance entitled "Cello tried hard!" Listen to one of her songs on the you tube at the end of this blog.
