Dettaglio dell'evento

Prizegiving ceremony. Cremona Musica Award 2023, “performance” category, is awarded to the great British cellist Steven Isserlis.

The Cremona Musica Award has been conferred on Steven Isserlis by virtue for his sensitive and passionate interpretations and for his unceasing dedication to the art of music. His discography and his books are an example and a model for many young musicians who are inspired and enlightened by him.

British cellist Steven Isserlis CBE enjoys an international career as a soloist, chamber musician, author, educator, and broadcaster. Equally at home in music from baroque to the present day, he performs with the world’s greatest orchestras, including period ensembles. He has given many world premieres, including works by Sir John Tavener, Thomas Adès and György Kurtág.

His vast award-winning discography includes most of the cello repertoire, including the JS Bach suites (Gramophone Instrumental Album of the Year), and Beethoven’s complete works for cello and piano. His two books for children about music are among the genre’s most popular ever written and have been translated into many languages.

His latest book is a critically-acclaimed companion to the Bach cello suites, which is published in Italian by Edizione Curci in September 2023.

Since 1997, he has been Artistic Director of the International Musicians Seminar, Prussia Cove, Cornwall.

He plays the 1726 ‘Marquis de Corberon’ Stradivarius, on loan from the Royal Academy of Music.
