Antonio Janigro (1918 - 1989)

Antonio Janigro was born into a musical family which had been touched by tragedy: his mother was a professional violinist, but his father, who had wanted to be a concert pianist, had lost his left arm to a sniper in World War I. He himself began to learn the piano at the age of six but two years later, having been given a cello by Giovanni Berti who also gave him his first lessons on it, he fell immediately in love with the instrument. At this, his father told him: ‘Either you will be a dedicated artist, worthy of the name, or you will be a mere amateur musician, playing for your own amusement, in which case you will become a barrister like both your grandfathers. You must decide now before it is too late.’ Janigro followed the path of the dedicated musician, and in less than a year he had progressed enough to be admitted to the Verdi Conservatory in Milan, where he studied cello with Gilberto Crepax, the principal cellist of the Orchestra of La Scala.
