Silvia Chiesa is a refined performer rich in personality, she is the artist who has most contributed to broadening the horizons of the cello. She has re-launched the twentieth century solo repertoire, creating the “Twentieth Century Italian Trilogy” for Sony Classical and the recent documentaries web series “Novecento Corsaro”. As soloist, she has performed with Rai NSO, Orchestra di Padova e del Veneto, Orchestra of Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, Mahler Chamber Orchestra, Orchestra della Toscana, Royal Philharmonic, and many others. With the pianist Maurizio Baglini she has a repertoire with more than 70 sonatas for cello and piano, has performed over 250 concerts in the five continents and recorded for Decca. 

Visionary pianist, with a taste for musical challenges, Maurizio Baglini has an intense international concert career. His wide record production for Decca/Universal includes music by Liszt, Brahms, Schubert, Domenico Scarlatti, Mussorgsky, the Live at Amiata Piano Festival series and the first 5 CDs of the complete piano works by Schumann. He is among the few virtuosos in the world who perform the “Ninth Symphony” by Beethoven in the transcendental piano transcription by Liszt, and in 2020 he exceeded the record of one hundred performances. He has created the innovative “Web Piano” project in which his live performances are accompanied by video projections by the artist Giuseppe Andrea L’Abbate.
