plus APR, 06 2018

The tenth 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 five 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, oer six outstanding young pianists a period of intensive study with
some expert contemporary répétiteurs. The skills of good répétiteurs cannot be underestimated,
nor can their inuence on the life and career of a singer. They are the most versatile
musicians in the world of classical music, inuential 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.
