Luisa Sello - Biography


Aprilske vinjete (1997)
by Lojze Lebic

Instrument: Flute
Luisa Sello took her diploma in flute at the Conservatory of Udine at a very young age, then studied at the Accademia Chigiana of Siena with Severino Gazzelloni and at the Académie Internationale de Nice with Alain Marion.
After important masterclasses with Conrad Klemm, Glauco Cambursano and James Galway, her meeting with the flautist and teacher Raymond Guiot was of fundamental significance.
Under Guiot she undertook advanced studies in Paris over the course of many years, deepening her knowledge of the most important pieces of the solo repertoire for the flute.
She then pursued the study of interpretation at the prestigious school of the conductor Luigi Toffolo.
She immediately distinguished herself for her phrasing and quality of sound (of her Severino Gazzelloni wrote: "magnificent interpretive sensibility and excellent sound" - Raymond Guiot: "Very musical, superb sound") and began a concert career that has involved her presence in numerous festivals and international concert series.
Following a brief period of orchestral experience and collaboration with the orchestra of the Teatro alla Scala of Milan under the direction of Riccardo Muti, she has played alongside artists such as Alirio Diaz, Johannes Kropfitsch, Trevor Pinnock, the Nuovo Quartetto Italiano, the Jess Trio Wien, and has been guest soloist with orchestras such as I Virtuosi Italiani, the Salzburger Kammerorchester and the Orchestra Milano Classica.
She has participated in numerous chamber music tours with programmes that included the complete performance of Mozart's Concertos and Quartets, Vivaldi's Concertos, and the Sonatas for flute and harpsichord by J.S. Bach. Her classical background is combined with knowledge of early music performance and the study of the historic transverse flute, and with specialised study of the interpretation of Bach's repertoire.
Showing constant interest in contemporary production, Luisa Sello has worked with numerous composers (Franco Donatoni, Primoš Ramovš, Josef Anton Riedl, Salvatore Sciarrino) in premiere performances of their works at festivals such as the Biennale of Venice, the Klang-Aktionen Munich, Musikprotokoll Graz, Mittelfest.
Luisa Sello teaches flute at the Conservatory "Giuseppe Tartini" of Trieste.
She has been invited to hold masterclasses and advanced courses at the universities of Vienna, Cologne-Aachen, and of Graz, and at the Conservatories of Moscow, of Madrid and Buenos Aires. Since 1997 she has been teacher at the Sommerkurse für Musik of St. Paul in Lanvanttal.
Luisa Sello is supported by the international association of the Italian Ministry of Culture "CEMAT - New Italian Music in the World".
