Enrico Dindo is known around the world as being what Mstislav Rostropovich called ‘a cellist of exceptional qualities… with an extraordinary sound which flows as a splendid Italian voice.’ In particular, the sound he achieves has been described as ‘so light and lyrical that it is difficult to distinguish the dividing line between his pianissimo and silence’ (Leipziger Volkszeitung). Coupled with this sensitivity, Dindo’s passion for the music is revealed by the way he embraces ‘every phrase or jagged run of notes as if it was going to be his last’ (Toronto Star).
Enrico Dindo won First Prize at the Rostropovich Competition in Paris in 1997. Since then he has performed with orchestras including the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, Orchestre Nationale de France, Filarmonica della Scala, St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra, Toronto Symphony and Chicago Symphony.
A successful recording artist, Enrico Dindo has recorded with Decca and Chandos. For Decca he has released recordings of the Bach Suites (Decca, 2011) and Vivaldi and Bach Concertos (Decca, 2012, 2013). His recording of the Shostakovich Cello Concertos with the Danish National Orchestra and Gianandrea Noseda for Chandos (Chandos, 2011) has received outstanding acclaim.
Enrico Dindo is Professor of Cello at the Conservatorio della Svizzera Italiana in Lugano. In 2001, he founded the Pavia Cello Academy.
