Alberto Bologni

Alberto Bologni obtained the diploma of the Conservatorio of Florence. He subsequently took a soloist’s diploma at Rotterdam Conservatoire. His training benefited from three of the most celebrated European violin-playing traditions: Sandro Materassi provided a link with the Venetian school of Giulio Pasquali and the German-Hungarian school of Jeno Hubay, while Stephan Gheorghiu and Ilya Grubert transmitted the teachings of the Russian-Soviet school of Oistrakh and Kogan. An enthusiast of art, cinema and literature, Alberto Bologni’s intellectual curiosity has made him one of the most versatile violinists of his generation. His repertoire combines well known masterworks with rarities and rediscoveries, as well as a substantial series of contemporary compositions.
