Francesca Torelli lute
16th century Lute Music across Europe, Da Vinci classics
Francesca Torelli is considered among the best Italian lutenists in today’s Early music scene.
After earning a degree in lute with the highest marks at the Conservatory of Verona under the guidance of Orlando Cristoforetti, Francesca completed her studies with Nigel North at the Guildhall School of Music in London. At the same time, she studied Renaissance and Baroque singing with Auriol Kimber.
From the start, her concert activities have featured solo repertoire for lute and theorbo, as well as repertoire for voice and lute (singing while accompanying herself on the instrument). Since 2000 she’s also been the director of several Early music ensembles.
