The Ensemble I virtuosi di Sansevero originated from an idea of Riccardo Zamuner, young Neapolitan violinist, who put together some of the most talented string students of the Stauffer Academy in Cremona, the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia and other important International Academies, to create a string Ensemble without conductor, where every member is an outstanding soloist.

The ensemble is very versatile. In its entirety it consists of 11 musicians, but repertoire written for various chamber ensembles is often programmed: this includes string trio, quartet, quintet, sextet and octet. In many performances the young musicians are joined by world renowned artists.

The project is based on the idea of excellence. In fact, the concert venues are also important artistic places of our city, such as Cappella Sansevero, the Pio Monte della Misericordia and other Churches and Museums.

Furthermore, I Virtuosi di Sansevero support the environment with their slogan “Seminiamo Cultura” (Planting seeds of culture). In every concert venue a plant symbolizes rebirth and hope for a future of natural and spiritual development.All the Ensemble members have an intense concert activity both as soloists and as chamber musicians, as well as in prestigious orchestras, and are prize-winners in important International Competitions.The Ensemble debuted in 2017 in the evocative Cappella Sansevero in Naples. Since then, they have performed in important artistic venues in Naples and in Italy.
