VC Artist Pablo Ferrandez Steps in for Munich Philharmonic Performance
The Spanish cellist will perform in the place of cellist Truls Mørk in Prague on September 8 and 9, 2022
VC Artist cellist Pablo Ferrandez has stepped in for Norwegian cellist Truls Mørk in two concerts in the Dvořák Prague Festival — with the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra and conductor Myung-whun Chung.
In Prague’s Rudolfinum, Dvořák Hall, on September 8, Pablo will perform Dvořák’s Cello Concerto in B Minor, which will be followed by Dvořák's Symphony No. 9 “From the New World.” The concert on September 9 will see Ferrandez in Schumann’s Cello Concerto in B minor and the orchestra performing Bruckner’s Symphony No. 6.
According to Munich Philharmonic’s concert schedule, Mørk will be performing with them on September 10 and 11, 2022, at the Konzerthaus Dortmund and Freiburg Concert Hall, respectively, as part of the orchestra’s guest concerts.
Pablo has appeared with the Berlin Philharmonic, London Philharmonic, BBC Philharmonic, Kremerata Baltica, and HR-Sinfonieorchester, plus frequently collaborates with Anne-Sophie Mutter, Janine Jansen, Vadim Repin, Martha Argerich, Gidon Kremer, Yuja Wang, and Alice Sara Ott.
Born in 1991 in Madrid to a musical family, he studied at the Reina Sofía School of Music with Natalia Shakhovskaya, at the Kronberg Academy with Frans Helmerson, and was a scholarship recipient from the Anne-Sophie Mutter Foundation. Pablo performs on the 1696 “Lord Aylesford” Stradivarius cello — previously played by luminaries, Gregor Piatigorsky and Janos Starker.
