Andrea Noferini comes from a family of musicians. His mother is a pianist and his father a composer, conductor and former Director of the Conservatorio “G.B. Martini” in Bologna. He mastered his instrumental skills in Brussels, at the school of the great violinist Arthur Grumiaux, to whom he owes his virtuoso approach to the cello, one clearly influenced by the violin. In 1987, at the age of eighteen, he graduated with top marks and “cum laude” from the G. Verdi Conservatory in Milan, continuing his studies with Antonio Janigro. He has performed as a soloist with leading orchestras in Italy and abroad, from South America to Russia and Japan, and throughout Europe. He has been principal cellist at the Teatro dell’Opera di Roma since 1991. In 1997 he was awarded the Nettuno d’Oro prize as the best artist of the year, in 1999 and 2007 the Virtuosity Award, in 2001 the Son de Cristal, and in 2002 the Gold Medal as best Italian musician, among other honours. He plays an instrument made in Mantova in 1759 by Tomaso Balestrieri.
