“As the composer Benjamin Britten once said ‘it is the composer’s and musician’s duty, as a member of society, to speak to or for his fellow human beings…’ I want my music to be of use to people, to please them, to enhance their lives’. As musician and European citizen, I’m excited to actively support The Festival, being totally convinced of the importance and the necessity of an exchange of cultures and traditions in a harmonious atmosphere.”

With style and to the point. It seems as if our newest family member Paolo Petrocelli from Rome knew exactly where and how he wants to contribute to the European world of music. A musician, journalist, marketing manager of an incredible Italian symphonic orchestra and an enthusiastic European - what else can we ask for… Welcome on board, Paolo!

About Paolo

Paolo Petrocelli was born in Rome in 1984. He received his violin degree from the Conservatory of Santa Cecilia and graduated in musicology from the Università Sapienza where, under the guidance of Philip Gossett, he specialized in the study of European music in the 20th century. He was admitted to masters programs at London’s City University and Royal Holloway University. In 2007 he received a research grant from the William Walton Trust. In 2008 the Italian magazine of musicology “Nuova Rivista Musicale Italiana” published his essay on Walton’s Violin Concerto. In 2009 he worked with Vatican Radio to realize a series of episodes on 20th century British music and William Walton.

In addition to his activities as a musician and musicologist he also works as a journalist and as a manager for musicians and musical acts. He writes for Italian and European music and culture magazines and collaborates on the organization of international music and film festivals such as: English Music Festival, Tuscan Sun Festival, Rome Chamber Music Festival, Rome Film Festival and the Roma Independent Film Festival.

He has also worked with the artistic direction and library departments of the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia. He is committee member of the Working Youth Group of the European Music Council.

In 2008, along with the electric-acoustic ensemble Zeitlet, he won the Independent Music Awards in the Film Music section. In 2010 he published his first book with the Cambridge Scholar Publishing, titled “The Resonance of a Small Voice. William Walton and the Violin Concerto in England, between 1900 and 1940”.

Paolo Petrocelli is the media & marketing manager of the Orchestra Symphonica d’Italia and is the violinist of the indie-folk band, Vinegar Socks.
