Heartfelt, soothing, and unbelievably romantic. Mr Massimiliano Martinelli and Mrs Fulvia Mancini, aka Mr & Mrs Cello, are igniting sparks of electricity in the classical music scene with their passionate display of musical expertise.
Seamlessly mixing virtuosity and elegance, in 2018 the duo swept worldwide audiences right off their feet with their debut single Nuvole Bianche.
Their popular Crossover series, which comprises three albums so far, has attracted over 1 million total streams on Spotify, and their stunning cello arrangements will be published by Hal Leonard in the spring of 2020. Much like fellow digital stars Brooklyn Duo and The Piano Guys, Mr & Mrs Cello are evolving our idea of classical music, helping bridge the gap between the
classical and pop music worlds.
Prize winners in several international competitions, the couple played cello since they were children, and studied in Italy and Switzerland. In 2005 they were chosen by Maestro Riccardo Muti to play in his first Luigi Cherubini Orchestra, and have performed both as soloists and in chamber music groups across Europe and Asia.
Based in Switzerland, Mr Martinelli and Mrs Mancini are Artistic Directors of the music festival Classics am Zuerichsee, that takes place by Horgen, in Badhaus. Also notable music educators, they are firmly committed to helping others bring out the best in themselves through
the development of excellent technique and a confident stage presence.
They have received invitations to performe and to teach cello and chamber music at the Music University in Hokkaido, Japan as well as the Music University in Sicily, Italy.
They are currently performing in important festivals, such as the “Alfredo Piatti” International Cello Festival in Bergamo, and will perform in the future in Europe, China, Korea and the US.
