About the performer 

Described as an ‘artist whose overwhelming musicality goes beyond his instrument’ (Il Sole24Ore), in 2019 Samuele Telari was a prize-winner at the YCAT International Auditions held in London.

During the 2021/22 season he makes his debut as soloist with the Haydn Orchestra conducted by Kent Nagano in Italy. He returns to Wigmore Hall and Schlern Music Festival, and gives recitals at Saffron Hall, the Deal and Cheltenham Music Festivals. In August he undertakes a tour of Colombia. 

Over the last year Samuele has given recitals at Snape Maltings Concert Hall in Aldeburgh, the Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Verbier Festival, the Divertimento Ensemble Rondò series in Milan and Schlern Music Festival (North Italy). Read more
