The Ladies’ Morning Musical Club presents

Alban Gerhardt

An unerring musical instinct, intense emotionality and a natural, arresting stage presence are the defining qualities of German cellist Alban Gerhardt. Over the past decade, he has established himself among the leading practitioners of his instrument. His sound is unmistakable and his interpretations of the repertoire are distinguished in their originality. He has performed as soloist with many internationally known orchestras, including the Berlin Philharmonic, the Cleveland Orchestra and the London Philharmonic. In 1993 he won the Leonard Rose International Cello Competition sponsored by the University of Maryland, College Park. Reviewing his prize concert in Alice Tully Hall for the New York Times, Allan Kozinn noted that Gerhardt ‘played with the burnished tone, focused intonation, and technical dexterity that one expects of young soloists in these days of high-gloss conservatory training.’ At the 2009 BBC Proms, he premiered a cello concerto by Unsuk Chin, which he has continued to perform around the world. In 2015 the cellist concludes a three-year artist residency with the Oregon Symphony. Mr. Gerhardt plays a cello made by Matteo Goffriller in 1710. 4th LMMC engagement.
