Arkady Beletsky’s cello is labeled “Paolo Antonio Testore.” The cello’s date of manufacture is
unknown; its damaged label is almost illegible. Paolo Antonio Testore (1690- after 1760), and
his brother Carlo Antonio Testore (1688- after 1764), learned instrument making from their
father, luthier Carlo Giuseppe Testore. The family worked as luthiers in Milan.

All pianos played in the concerts are from The Frederick Collection
