I intentionally craft contemporary solo cello programs around the belief that new music can be a thrilling and meaningful experience for the veteran and the uninitiated. I love contemporary music—and through my vivid and enthusiastic performances I will demonstrate why.
During my travels around the world to New York, Istanbul, Baghdad… I collect new cello pieces from exciting composers I come into contact with – composers who come from different styles, schools, countries, and traditions. A journey through very different kinds of contemporary music, my programs are like curated tasting menus, on which you will encounter noisy, minimal, hard-rock, sentimental, aleatoric, groovy, astonishing, exciting, humorous and yes, even beautiful pieces.
I also offer to tailor specific programs in a certain style or prepare a lecture performance to fit your individual need.
