2020 Piatigorsky International Cello Festival
Ralph Kirshbaum, Artistic Director
It was with great sadness that the USC Thornton School of Music announced the cancellation of the 2020 Piatigorsky International Cello Festival, owing to uncertainly around the Covid-19 virus.
As the event’s official media partner, The Strad has put together a digital tribute to the festival, including reports on previous Piatigorsky events and a selection of the best cello coverage from their extensive archive, in collaboration with the festival’s sponsors.
You will find articles on great cellists of the past, masterclasses by today’s leading performers on important cello repertoire, and some cello-related features, all illustrated with high-quality photographs. All content is free to view until April 23, 2020. We hope you enjoy!
