Massimo Mercelli has become a solo flautist at the Venice’s Teatro La Fenice, when he was only nineteen. He soon won three prestigious international competitions and thus became much appreciated and sought-after musician. The artist has been performing with all of the most important orchestras, at the international festivals and within the season-ticket cycles of the prestigious concert halls.
His concert programme will be a veritable feast of Bach’s art – a special challenge for musicians and a real treat for all the lovers of the music by this Baroque genius.
»My drug is called Bach«, admitted in one of his interviews the thirty six years old Iranian pianist, who lives and works between Italy and Germany. His father has died in prison under the Khomeini regime, whereas Ramin was lucky enough to emigrate and later on study piano in Milan and Stuttgart. The artist, who made his debut with the celebrated Gewnadhaus Orchestra under the baton of Riccardo Chailly, is considered today one of the most interesting interpreters of Bach’s heritage.
