One of the world’s top cellists, Isserlis will present “Composers and Their Muses,” pairing works by female composers with works by the lovers and teachers they inspired: Schumann, Martinu and Franck.

Acclaimed worldwide for his profound musicianship and technical mastery, British cellist Steven Isserlis enjoys a uniquely varied career as soloist, chamber musician, educator, author and broadcaster. He appears with such orchestras as the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig, Berlin Philharmonic, Vienna Philharmonic, London Philharmonic, Zurich Tonhalle and Los Angeles Philharmonic, and gives recitals every season in the world’s major venues. He has curated concert series for Wigmore Hall, 92nd St Y and the Salzburg Festival. Unusually, he often directs chamber orchestras from the cello.

Steven’s award-winning discography includes Bach’s Cello Suites (Gramophone’s Instrumental Album of the Year), Beethoven’s complete works for cello and piano with Robert Levin, and Brahms’ Double Concerto with Joshua Bell and the Academy of St Martin in the Fields.

Isserlis’ many honours include a CBE in recognition of his services to music, the Schumann Prize of the City of Zwickau, and the Piatigorsky Prize in the USA. In 2017 alone he was awarded the Glashütte Original Music Festival Award, the Wigmore Hall Gold Medal, and the Walter Willson Cobbett Medal for Services to Chamber Music. His children’s books have been translated into many languages.
This will be the West Coast debut of “Composers & Their Muses.”
