"Belcanto on a violoncello," seems to be the most appropriate comment overheard after a concert given by the famous Italian musician. The tone quality produced on his cello is of a remarkable flexibility and warmth, almost like a beautiful voice. Yet, every single phrase is moulded to perfection. His inspired performance imparts magic to each interpretation.
Enrico Mainardi was born 1897 in Milano, and studied there at the Verdi Conservatoire. At the age of 13 he appeared before the public as a soloist. Three years later his collaboration with Max Reger led to the first performance of the latter's violoncello sonata Op. 116. Since then Enrico Mainardi has given solo performances in all European countries.
For some years Mainardi has held a professorship at the Accademia Santa Cecilia in Rome, and regularly takes part in the annual summer courses at Salzburg and Lucerne. Together with Edwin Fischer and Georg Kulenkampff he formed a trio, well known throughout Europe. When Kuhlenkampff died a few years ago, his place was taken by Wolfgang Schneiderhan. Enrico Mainardi has made a name for himself as a composer and conductor. The first German performance of his cello concerto took place at Bochum in March 1952. His importance as a soloist and a teacher is indisputable.
