Francesco Mastromatteo 4.19.17

Italian cellist Francesco Mastromatteo is something of an undiscovered treasure in the Central Texas classical music scene. After studying in Italy, he moved to texas to complete his master’s degree from Southern Methodist University, and his doctorate from the Butler School of Music at the University of Texas. Francesco has been working for years on one of the most quintessential pieces in the cello repertoire, J.S. Bach’s Cello Suites. These pieces can take a lifetime to understand, but Francesco has found something in them that is unique, his interpretation simultaneously pays homage to the master and forges it’s own path. Francesco Mastromatteo will perform all six of the suites this weekend, but he stopped by Studio 1A to give us a little preview first
