I Musici

Sixty years have passed since twelve young graduates, mainly from the Santa Cecilia Conservatory, got together to give voice to their passion. Thus was born a rarity of its time, a chamber group without a conductor. This apparent lack could have been their Achilles’ heel when the great Toscanini heard them, but their enthusiasm brought out the strong and affectionate words: “Bravi, bravissimi…( very good, excellent) music won’t die!” … from him. Time has passed quickly, yet the sound that travelled these decades still lights up the eyes of those who were participants in this extraordinary cavalcade as if it had lasted only a moment. For I Musici time hasn’t flown and paradoxically, the future is behind their shoulders as for the Aymara people. It turns the traditional western concept upside down and without giving it a lot of thought, creates a vortex of thought that makes its mark. Nowadays not one of the foundation members still forms part of the group but this isn’t the reason that the original spirit has been lost.
Over the years the new elements were able to assimilate the impulse from the older members, similar to an incredible wave of energy that has always characterised I Musici’s concerts. They, in their turn transmitted it to the newer members. We could say that there’s a true and actual ‘DNA’ that has passed down from one generation to another. For some years I Musici have recorded for the Italian label of Fonè. This recording company has done quality and technologically avantgard work. They already have two discs to show from this collaboration. The present and third one is dedicated to celebrating I Musici’s sixtieth anniversary. This last one, more than the others surely, underlines the group’s beauty of sound and its expressive capacity. The style is fresh and modern but the warmth of the sound is traditional. The ability to unite the typically Italian expressive and melodic spirit, with a great interpretative quality that has won over many generations of listeners, is probably the secret to the group’s long and successful career. We hope that they continue to do this for many years yet to come. 
Congratulations, I Musici!

I Musici

In 1951, twelve young and promising italian musicians, mainly roman and mostly graduates of the at the Accademia di Santa Cecilia in Rome, got together "inter pares" to create a unique chamber orchestra comprising six violins, two violas, two cellos, one double bass and one harpsichord.
They chose the simple, yet nice, name I MUSICI and they deliberately decided to shape the ensemble without conductor. They did so in order to create an egalitarian relationship among the twelve colleagues and friends, which would bring to their music-making a unanimity on technical and interpretative questions. It was a very unconventional but unexpectedly suitable procedure. Notably, maestro Arturo Toscanini, on hearing them rehearsing in April 1952 at the Italian Radio studios, enthused over the young orchestra in front of journalists and musical personalities, and dedicated his photograph to the group with the words “bravi, bravissimi …no! la musica non muore”, (bravo, the music will not die).
A few weeks earlier, on the 30th of March 1952, their public debut was an enormous success at the Accademia di Santa Cecilia in Roma; it was the starting point of an astonishing career, which in a schort time catapulted them among the ranks of the great international performers.
During the course of the years, the musicians have changed, the original members of the group retired but, together with the younger talent that has taken their place, there has always been a generation of “historic” members present who guarantee the tradition and continuity of the orchestra.
At present I Musici are regular guests at the most important international festivals and they carry out an intense concert activity in prestigious theatres and concert halls such as: “G Enescu” International Festival in Bucharest, Colon Theatre in Buenos Aires, Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Centre in New York, the “Spring Festival” in Budapest, Sunthory Hall and Opera City in Tokyo, the Musikverein in Vienna, the Philharmonie in Berlin, Palau de la Musica in Barcelona, Seoul Arts Centre, Boston Symphony Hall, Shanghai Concert Hall, Beijing National centre for the Performing Arts and numerous others.
