Art in the Concert Hall Cellisten Guido Vecchi (Cellist Guido Vecchi)

Guido Vecchi (1910-1997) was concertmaster in the cello meeting of the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra for 40 years, 1936-76. Here he is portrayed in oil by the artist Lillemor Tell (1920-2010).

Guido Vecchi was concertmaster in the cello part of the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra for 40 years (1936-1976). At the same time he devoted himself to chamber music in smaller ensembles, solo performances and educational activities. His interpretations of newer, Swedish music have received special attention. Among other things, he was part of the so-called Piano Quartet, formed in 1948 by Brita Hjort and consisting of – in addition to Hjort and Vecchi – Charles Senderovitz and Sten Broman. In 1989, Guido Vecchi was appointed honorary doctor at the Faculty of Arts by the University of Gothenburg.

The painting is not on display in the Concert Hall right now.
