The eleventh edition of the Solti Peretti Répétiteurs Masterclasses, organised in collaboration with the Georg Solti Accademia di Bel Canto, will end with a concert featuring six pianists and
six singers performing works from the Bel Canto repertoire in the splendid setting of the Sala degli Arazzi in the Fondazione Giorgio Cini. The Solti Peretti Répétiteurs Masterclasses, unique
in their kind, offer five outstanding young pianists a period of intensive study with some expert contemporary répétiteurs. The skills of good répétiteurs cannot be underestimated, nor can their
influence on the life and career of a singer. They are the most versatile musicians in the world of classical music, influential coaches for singers, enabling them to express their full potential in
performances. Significantly, many répétiteurs have gone on to become top international conductors: Solti, Pappano, Gergiev and Muti, to mention but a few. Over the years, the Georg
Solti Accademia has built up a great reputation for professionalism, rigorous discipline and care over details. These are the same values that Sir Georg Solti pursued throughout his life. To honour his memory and spirit, singers who have worked with him – such as Mirella Freni, Kiri Te Kanawa, José Carreras, Leo Nucci, Luciana Serra, Daniela Dessi, Frederica von Stade, Mariella
Devia, Thomas Allen and Angela Gheorghiu – have collaborated with the Solti Accademia, thus handing down to the new generations what they themselves learned as young singers.
