SAD NEWS | Israeli-Born Cellist Uzi Weisel Has Died - Aged 92 [RIP]

Israeli-born cellist and pedagogue Uzi Weisel has passed away - aged 92

Israeli-born cellist and pedagogue Uzi Weisel has passed away - aged 92.

A graduate of The Juilliard School, where he studied with Felix Salmond and Bernard Greenhouse, Professor Weisel was a former prize winner at the Moscow and Pablo Casals International Cello Competitions - and was founding member of the internationally acclaimed Tel Aviv String Quartet.

He served teaching positions on faculty at the Tel Aviv University Academy of Music and the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, in Australia.

Professor Weisel was recognized in 1996 by Indiana University with the title of ‘Chevalier du Violoncelle’ -  in recognition of his international contributions to the art of playing and teaching the cello.

“His tremendous musicality and insight, matched with his long experience as a musician at the highest international level, was an enormous asset to our faculty …” Sydney Conservatorium teaching colleague, violinist Ole Bohn has said.

“I will always remember him vividly … he was very important to the music world,” he has said.

Our condolences are with Professor Weisel’s family, friends, colleagues and students.
