Tilly Cernitori

This week we had a chat with Vienna-based cellist, Tilly Cernitori!

We all know HELLO STAGE's favourite colour! What's yours?

Mine is blue.

What was the best advice a teacher ever gave you?

"Be your own teacher" - I won't ever forget it!

How has your practice changed with time?

I am quicker at understanding what the problem is and in finding a reasonable solution for solving it.

What do you think is the most important trait of a successful artist in today's modern world?

There are certain traits that I think are important, but the most difficult skill at a certain level is to be able to communicate effectively with the audience.

How much time do you spend every day on Facebook, Twitter and which other ways do you use to promote yourself?

I don't really have that much time to spend on social networks everyday! When I do, most of the time I use Facebook and I like to drop by at HELLO STAGE to see what's happening.

Tilly, tell us more about your contemporary music projects…

I love working together with composers and in doing this I understood that the interpretation of music - especially of historical composers, which once were alive too! - is not as strict as it is generally assumed. I premiered two works which were written for me by an argentinian and a brazilian composer; Pablo Aguirre and Dimitri Cervo. I also have a contemporary viennese music project (WienContempo) with pianist Petra Giacalone running.

What are the challenges a young and upcoming artist faces when recording a CD?

Good question! With the new digital world, the CD is facing a tough time, as are the recording companies. For young artists, this change can be glass which is half empty or half full: it is very difficult - close to impossible - to find a recording company that is willing to launch you as a new musician without spending some of your own money in the process, but at the same time, it has become very attainable to record, print and merchandise your own CD, or to publish your MP3 or video on specific portals or channels. So, while there are fewer possibilities with the brands we know (also because the competition is very tough), there are more opportunities to be creative and try to promote yourself with a very reasonable budget.
