Internationally Renowned Cellist to Present Student Workshop at UK Chandler Hospital

Published: Apr 11, 2013

 

LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 11, 2013) - Internationally renowned cellist Johannes Moser will perform for middle school students Saturday, April 13, at the UK Chandler Hospital Pavilion A auditorium as part of this year's Saykaly Garbulinska Performance in Residence Series.

 

The performance, presented by UK HealthCare, will be from 2 to 3 p.m.

 

The non-traditional performance will include some works by Moser, but will primarily serve as an interactive musical demonstration for students who attend.

 

Scott Terrell, music conductor of the Lexington Philharmonic, will emcee the event.

 

Other musicians will play in the UK Chandler Hospital Pavilion A atrium before and after the main event.

 

As part of the Lucille Caudill Little Performing Arts in HealthCare Program, the Teresa Garbulinska Annual Premier Concert Series was founded with a grant from Dr. Ronald Saykaly and Mrs. Teresa Garbulinska. The series brings an internationally renowned artist to the new hospital auditorium on an annual basis.

 

The Lucille Caudill Little Performing Arts in HealthCare Program through the UK School of Music offers the only music therapy graduate degree program in Kentucky.

 

Praised for his rich, gorgeous tone and playing that can range from lovely and elegant to vigorous with head-banging, rock star energy, German-Canadian cellist Johannes Moser has been hailed by Gramophone Magazine as “one of the finest among the astonishing gallery of young virtuoso cellists.”

 

Moser has performed with the world’s leading orchestras such as the Berlin Philharmonic, New York Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony, London Symphony, Cleveland Orchestra, Concertgebouw Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Bayerische Rundfunk Orchestra, Hong Kong Philharmonic, Munich Philharmonic, Tokyo Symphony and Israel Philharmonic. He works regularly with conductors of the highest level including Riccardo Muti, Lorin Maazel, Mariss Jansons, Valery Gergiev, Zubin Mehta, Vladimir Jurowski, Franz Welser-Möst, Manfred Honeck, Christian Thielemann, Pierre Boulez and Paavo Jarvi.

 

Born into a musical family in 1979 as a dual citizen of Germany and Canada, Johannes began studying the cello at the age of eight and became a student of Professor David Geringas in 1997. He was the top prize winner at the 2002 Tchaikovsky Competition, in addition to being awarded the Special Prize for his interpretation of the Rococo Variations. He holds a professorship at the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz in Cologne, Germany and enjoys playing a Andrea Guaneri Cello from 1694 from a private collection.

 

A voracious reader of everything from Kafka to Collins, and an avid outdoorsman, New York-based Johannes Moser climbs mountains in his free time and has crossed the Alps on his mountain bike.

 

Moser will perform Friday night with the Lexington Philharmonic.

 

Tickets for Saturday's event are free, but must be reserved in advance. To reserve tickets, please contact Jason Akhtarekhavari at (859) 323-9896 or by email jason.star@uky.edu.

 

Ticket availability is limited. Tickets will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis
