Hailed by Gramophone Magazine as “one of the finest among the astonishing gallery of young virtuoso cellists,” German-Canadian cellist JOHANNES MOSER has performed with the world’s leading orchestras and works regularly with conductors of the highest caliber.
In the 2016/17 season, Moser’s engagements in North America include returns to the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. His 2016/17 European appearances will include the BBC Scottish Symphony, the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, and the Staatsoper Hannover Orchestra. He makes debuts with the National Symphony Orchestra and at the Laguna Beach Music Festival, and he will present the world premiere of the newest work by Julia Wolfe with the Pacifica Quartet.
Known for his efforts to expand the reach of the classical genre, his passionate focus on new music, and his commitment to reaching out to young audiences, Moser aims to present classical music in ways with which listeners of all ages can engage and connect. Recent and notable projects include the October 2011 premiere of Enrico Chapela’s electric cello concerto Magnetar with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, which was followed by a return in January 2014 for the cello concerto Up-close by Michel van der AA. More recently, Moser is collaborating on a new work with Andrew Norman (for 2017/18).
Moser won the top prize at the 2002 Tchaikovsky competition and was the recipient of the 2014 Brahms prize. His recordings have earned him two ECHO Klassik awards and the Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik. He is an exclusive Pentatone recording artist and is set to release a Rachmaninoff and Prokofiev album with Russian pianist Andrei Korobeinikov in the fall of 2016.
