The BaRock side of the Cello
Tiziano Guerzoni – cello
Enrico Guerzoni – cello
The band is extremely rare if not unique in the world, both as instruments and repertoire. The range performed by GuerzonCellos is vast and reaches from baroque to jazz and rock, peppered with their own compositions. Outstanding energy meets virtuosity making their concerts an unique experience. The Bologna based duo consists of Tiziano and Enrico Guerzoni, son and father, who do not only play the cello in a way seldomly heard before, but they celebrate their instrument as an incredibly eclectic tool of musical expression. Furious interpretations of baroque classics as well as creative re-arrangements of modern jazz and rock songs render their concerts into a highly sophisticated performance. Tough the peak of their technical and creative skills is found in their own compositions when Tiziano and Enrico mix musical influences since the 17 th century including psychedelic, jazz, improvisations and traditional folk elements. An irresistible combination !
