Emanuel Gruber, cellist
Guest artist Emanuel Gruber presents an afternoon cello recital.
Gruber is celebrated as a soloist, chamber musician, recording artist and teacher. He has brought his "authority, sensitivity to musical values, wide dynamic range, and great mastery of his instrument" (Music Journal, New York) to collaborations with artists such as Neville Marriner, Rudolf Barshai, Shelomo Mintz, Pinkas Zukerman, Miriam Fried, Philippe Entremont, Jean Bernard Pommier, Tamas Vasary, and Janos Starker.
"One of our great artists" the Jerusalem Post wrote, citing "his extraordinary capacity for projecting the deepest meaning of the music."
Awarded the Pablo Casals Prize by the Philharmonic Orchestra, he also won the Concert Artists' Guild Auditions early in his career.
He has been principal cellist of the Israel Chamber Orchestra and co-principal of the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra. He was a member of Sequoia Quartet, Camerata Trio, Tel Aviv Piano Quartet, and leader of the Israel Cello Ensemble.
Gruber will present a masterclass on Saturday, March 30 at 4:30 pm in the Recital Salon, open to all.
