I had the luck to play wonderful violas in my musical life

The magic 1731 Paganini Strad of course, my beloved and amazing 1680 Torazzi, thanks to my friends of the PEK but still: I felt it was time for modern too. Not easy to choose. So many fantastic violin makers. Welcome then to the 2019 Yael Rosenblum viola, [...]

Looking forward to being in Schloss Elmau with the wonderful clarinetist David Orlowsky

Can’t wait to fly to Roma again and play the last concert of the Mozart Quartets. With a nice add: the clarinet quintet with Alessandro Carbonare

9 February 2021

Finally in Milano at the Società del Quartetto we’ll premiere The Art of the Fugue by Bach. I wanted so much this project. This visionary work.

And I will perform it switching between my viola and a wonderful tenor viola made by my friend Pietro Gargini. It will be tuned a fifth lower than the normal viola setting.

It means: RE-SOL-DO-FA (D-G-C-F)

After 20 years of quartet playing it was time to look forward to a new dimension of music!

Back to the english temple of chamber music, the unique Wigmore Hall. With Johann Sebastian Bach and his Art of the Fugue…: can’t wait!


“Gramaglia is clearly the star, and his playing is hard to fault – intonation as well as interpretation. Violists will want this one[..]”
