Norman Fischer (cello)

Norman Fischer has concertized on five continents and in fourty-nine of the fifty United States. His 1983 New York solo debut of the Bach Six Suites in one evening was hailed by The New York Times as 'inspiring'. Norman was cellist with the Concord String Quartet through its sixteen-year career, and winner of the Naumburg Chamber Music Award, two Grammy nominations and an Emmy. Norman's chamber music expertise has led to performances with major festivals and collaborations with the American, Audubon, Axelrod, Bair, Cavani, Chester, Chiara, Ciompi, Cleveland, Dover, Ensø, Emerson, Jasper, Juilliard, Mendelssohn, Schoenberg and Telegraph string quartets.

Norman is the cellist with the Fischer Duo, a group with pianist Jeanne Kierman that was founded in 1971 and specializes in the classical masterworks of Beethoven, Brahms and Schumann as well as music of our own time.

He is currently Herbert S Autrey Professor of Cello and Director of Chamber Music at the Shepherd School of Music at Rice University in Houston. Norman also holds the Charles E Culpepper Foundation Master Teacher Chair and is Head of Chamber Music at the Tanglewood Music Center, where he has been on the summer faculty since 1985.
