I Musici performs compositional works by Geminiani, Pergolesi and Vivaldi. In 1952, 12 young and promising Italian musicians, mainly roman and mostly graduates of the Accademia di Santa Cecilia in Rome, got together "inter pares" to create a unique chamber orchestra comprising six violins, two violas, two cellos, one double bass and one harpsichord. They chose the simple yet nice name I Musici and they deliberately decided to shape the ensemble without conductor. They did so in order to create an egalitarian relationship among the 12 colleagues and friends, which would bring to their music-making a unanimity on technical and interpretative questions. It was a very unconventional but unexpectedly suitable procedure. Notably, maestro Arturo Toscanini, on hearing them rehearsing in April 1952 at the Italian Radio studios, enthused over the young orchestra in front of journalists and musical personalities and dedicated his photograph to the group with the words, "bravi,! la musica non muore" (bravo, the music will not die).
