What kind of relationship does a musician have wih her banker? Well, in a highly varied career filled with unexpected twists and turns, his attitudes is sometimes benevolent, sometimes irritated. Ah, the artist’s life…!

And then one wonderful day, the musician meets a music-loving banker, and even more improbably, encounters him again at a concert in a secluded corned of Brittany. A ray of hope suddenly appears, and it isn’t long before the dream comes true: the CIC bank acquires a splendid Venetian instrument, built in 1737 in Udine by Francesco Goffriller. The cello’s sound is deep and sonorous, while the wood and varnish have a beautifully profound patina that makes it look as if it is being illuminated from within.

Venetian instruments, and particularly those built by Matteo Goffriller and his brother Francesco, are highly prized by cellists. Their sound is at once full, warm and powerful. These generous instruments not only allow the performer to create an unimaginably varied palette of colour, but also to sing out over a symphony orchestra in the largest concert hall.

This cello is perfectly suited to both solo and chamber music, and to the baroque, romantic and modern repertoires alike. A marvellous relationship of trust has built up between the banker and the musician, whose possibilities for exploring the world of sound have been infinitely expanded by this splendid and vibrantly alive instrument…
