As cellists from around the world gather in Los Angeles for the 2016 Piatigorsky Festival, we present an exhibition focusing on the historic instruments to be played at this acclaimed festival.

Tarisio’s Founder and Director Jason Price traces the development of the cello from the first known example by Andrea Amati in the mid-16th century, through 150 years of modifications in Cremona, Brescia, Venice, Rome and Bologna.

We also feature interviews with Ralph Kirshbaum, artistic director of the festival, on his Montagnana, Ron Leonard on the only existing Pietro Guarneri of Mantua cello, David Geringas and Zuill Bailey on their Guadagnini and Goffriller cellos and other festival artists.

Presented by the University of California Thornton School of Music and the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Piatigorsky Festival features ten days of performances, masterclasses and lectures from 26 international cellists. We wish the festival great success!
