About Alfredo Piatti
Carlo Alfredo Piatti (January 8, 1822 – July 18, 1901) was an Italian cellist. He was born at Borgo Canale, in Bergamo and died in Mozzo, 4 miles from Bergamo.
The cellist Alfredo Piatti made his concert debut at 15 and started touring at 16. No one doubted the young virtuoso's skill on the instrument, but he did not draw large crowds. As a result, when Piatti fell ill during an engagement, he was forced to sell his cello to cover the medical costs. Read more on Last.fm
