Pierrot Solaire
A musical journey through the late twentieth century

The flautist Luisa Sello, a passionate interpreter of contemporary music, who has been on the international concert scene for many years, proposes Pierrot Solaire, a fascinating new show in which the player accentuates her artistic performance through a series of gestures.

The interpreter becomes an actress in her own performance and not only a mediator between the written page and the audience. Gestures taken to their expressive extreme underline the poetics of the composers and exalt their intentions, in a mixture of symbology reflecting the atmosphere, legends and places of our memories.


With a constant interest in contemporary music, Luisa Sello has commissioned and premiered more than 100 works. She collaborated with composers like Franco Donatoni, Primož Ramovš, Josef Anton Riedl, Salvatore Sciarrino and Aldo Clementi, premiering their works in festivals such as the Biennale of Venice, the Klang-Aktionen Munich, Musikprotokoll Graz, Mittelfest, International Miami Festival, among others.

Luisa Sello studied with Severino Gazzelloni at the Accademia Chigiana in Siena and with Alain Marion at the Académie Internationale de Nice, then with Conrad Klemm, Glauco Cambursano, James Galway and Raymond Guiot. After collaborating with the Orchestra of the Teatro alla Scala of Milan under the direction of Riccardo Muti, Luisa Sello pursued a career as a soloist. She has played with artists such as Alirio Diaz, Johannes Kropfitsch, Trevor Pinnock, the Nuovo Quartetto Italiano, the Jess Trio Wien and with orchestras such as I Virtuosi Italiani, the Salzburger Kammerorchester and the Orchestra Milano Classica, performing the complete Mozart's and Vivaldi's Concerti.

Luisa Sello is Gastprofessor at the Universität für Musik of Graz. She has been invited to hold master classes and advanced courses at the Universities of Vienna, Koln, and Madrid and at the Conservatories of Moscow, Beijing, and Buenos Aires.

She received an university degree in Foreign Languages and Literature and published essays on the relationship between music and literature. She also writes poetry and was awarded several literary prizes.
