Steven Isserlis (cello)

Acclaimed worldwide for his technique and musicianship, British cellist Steven Isserlis enjoys a distinguished career as a soloist, chamber musician, educator and author. As a concerto soloist he appears regularly with the world’s leading orchestras and conductors, gives recitals with modern piano, fortepiano and harpsichord, appears frequently with period instrument ensembles, and, unusually, directs chamber orchestras from the cello. As a chamber musician he has devised many series for many of the world’s most famous festivals and venues.

Steven Isserlis has written two highly successful books about music for children: Why Beethoven Threw the Stew and Why Handel Waggled his Wig, both of which have been translated into many languages. He has also written the text for three musical stories, to music by the Oscar-winning composer Anne Dudley: Little Red Violin, Goldiepegs and the Three Cellos, and Cindercella. As a teacher he gives regular masterclasses around the world, and is artistic director of the famous International Musicians’ Seminar in Cornwall, England.

His diverse interests are reflected in an extensive and award-winning discography. His Hyperion recording of J S Bach’s Cello Suites met with the highest critical acclaim, and was Gramophone’s Instrumental Disc of the Year, as well as receiving the Critic’s Choice award at the Classical Brits. Other recordings include a recital disc with Thomas Adès, including the premiere recording of the latter’s Lieux retrouvés, a Schumann disc with Dénes Várjon, and the Brahms Cello Sonatas with Stephen Hough. His many honours include a CBE in 1998, the Schumann Prize of the city of Zwickau (Schumann’s birthplace) in 2000, and election to Gramophone Magazine’s Hall of Fame in 2013.
