VC Artist Zlatomir Fung Named as Artist-in-Residence at the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

As part of his residency, Fung will perform three different concerti with the orchestra in the 2023/24 season


As part of his residency, cellist and VC Artist Zlatomir Fung will appear as a soloist with London's Royal Philharmonic Orchestra both on the home turf of Cadogan Hall and on tour — with appearances in Bristol, Hull, Warwick, Guildford, and Northampton.

Fung will perform three different concerti: the Elgar Cello Concerto with Elena Schwarz, the Haydn Cello Concerto No.1 in C Major with Shiyeon Sung, and the Saint-Saëns Cello Concerto No.1 with Emilia Hoving.

A recipient of the Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship 2022 and a 2020 Avery Fisher Career Grant, Zlatomir Fung became the youngest-ever winner of the prestigious Tchaikovsky Competition in 2019, as well as the first American winner in four decades.

The winner of the 2017 Young Concert Artists International Auditions and the 2017 Astral National Auditions, Fung studied with Richard Aaron and Timothy Eddy at The Juilliard School.

"We are very pleased to welcome cellist Zlatomir Fung as our 2023–24 Artist-in-Residence," wrote the RPO on social media. "Making his debut with the Orchestra on 27 September 2023 in Cadogan Hall, Zlatomir will perform with us in London and across the country in a range of concerts that showcase the versatility of the cello."

"I'm extremely honored to be named the artist-in-residence with the Royal Philharmonic for the 2023-2024 season!" Fung wrote on social media. "I am so excited to get to know this legendary orchestra and to meet new audiences and music lovers next season!"
