About the artists:
Peter C. Dzialo, a native of Glastonbury, CT, was admitted to The Yale Graduate School of Music at age seventeen where he studied with legendary cellist Aldo Parisot and was chosen as the founding cellist of the new Norfolk Chamber Ensemble for Yale’s Norfolk Music Festival. Since graduation in 2004 he has been immersed in a variety of recording projects for the LPR label. Those include the most imposing solo cello works of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, some recorded for the first time. Among these rare works are pieces by Louis Abbiate, virtuoso cellist, composer and director of the School of Music in the principality of Monaco (1922-1933), which recordings have been added to the historical collection of The National Committee of Monaco Traditions. Additionally he has collaborated with the Servais Society in Halle, Belgium, editing a new critical edition of manuscript works of Adrien-François Servais, the “Paganini” of the cello. Peter continues to perform and lead recording projects for Lonely Peaks Records, engineering, producing, and mastering. His latest release — The Accordable Cello — presents accordatura works by J. S. Bach and Z. Kodály.
