Giovanni Sollima is a true virtuoso of the cello, playing for him is not an end in itself, but a mean of communicating with the world. He is a composer out of the ordinary, he communicates with a music full of mediterranean rhythms, with a melodic vein typically Italian, his world covers all eras “from the Jurassic of the Cello” as he calls the baroque period to the "Metal". He writes mainly for the cello and contributes significantly to the creation of new repertoire for his instrument. His audience is diverse; from classical music lovers to young "metalheads" Giovanni conquers all.
Born in Palermo into a family of musicians, he studied cello with Giovanni Perriera and Antonio Janigro and composition with his father Eliodoro Sollima and Milko Kelemen. He worked with artists such as Yo Yo Ma, Riccardo Muti, Claudio Abbado, Giuseppe Sinopoli, Jörg Demus, Martha Argerich, Riccardo Muti, Yuri Bashmet, Katia and Marielle Labèque, Ruggero Raimondi, Bruno Canino, DJ Scanner, Victoria Mullova, Patti Smith, Philip Glass, Carolyn Carlson, Bob Wilson, Peter Greenaway and John Turturro.
His latest cd for Glossa Music is the first of 3 cds with the integral of the cello music by roman composer Giovanni Battista Costanzi, the missing link between the baroque and classical music in the cello repertoire.
He teaches at the Accademy of Santa Cecilia in Rome and plays a cello by Francesco Ruggieri (1679, Cremona)
