Aldo Parisot

Aldo Parisot began cello lessons with his stepfather, Tomazzo Babini, who taught him a technique free from physical tension to which Parisot attributes his long performing career. He made his début with the Brazilian Symphony Orchestra at the age of twelve and was later heard by Carleton Sprague Smith (American attaché to the Brazilian Embassy) who invited him to a party in honour of Yehudi Menuhin. This led to the opportunity of studying with Feuermann at the Curtis Institute, but Feuermann died before Parisot was able to take up the place. He studied instead at Yale University (but did not have cello lessons there), which helped him launch his US career, and soon made a tour of Europe to great acclaim. In the 1950s he gave significant premières of works by American and Latin-American composers Villa-Lobos, Guarnieri, Siqueira, Porter and Martino. Further high-profile performances across the world included concerts with many distinguished conductors. Such was his success with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra that he was re-engaged some seventeen times.

Also an accomplished and acclaimed painter of abstract art works, Parisot has had an illustrious career as a teacher at various US institutions as well as the Manchester Cello Festival, UK, and the Helsinki Sibelius Academy. He is also a regular competition juror. His cello ensemble Yale Cellos, comprising twenty of his own students, has become highly regarded worldwide and received a Gramophone nomination for one of its several recordings.
