Pietro Modesti _ cornetto

I first met Pietro in Basel, last year during his final Bachelor concert at Schola Cantorum. I was so excited to hear that beautiful late Renaissance music, and the incredible sound of the “cornetto”, an instrument that I never heard before. This winter, he contacted me for a little reportage, so we spent a very cold day together in the woods, in some rooms of an antique dealer and a neo-Gothic cloister: those places full of presences, where Pietro often likes to venture out, perhaps driven by the voice of that magical wood that runs through his music.
