Expressive freedom arises naturally whenever Mario Brunello makes music. It flows from his openness to every emotion, giving life to interpretations of striking honesty and individuality. The Italian cellist, equally at home as concerto soloist, chamber musician and originator of pioneering projects, has captivated audiences worldwide and attracted international critical acclaim. His poetic artistry has been praised by Gramophone for its ‘great spirit’ and described as ‘intense and passionate’ by The Strad. Brunello is armed with the skills required to shift from searching introspection to extrovert display in response to the expressive breadth of a repertoire that spans everything from landmark concertos to striking contemporary cello masterworks.
