Alban Gerhardt


Since a decisive concert with the Berlin Philharmonic 30 years ago, Alban Gerhardt has never ceased to express an extraordinary musical appetite, even in contemporary creation. He brings research and freshness to a constantly evolving repertoire for an audience that is sometimes far from the concert hall. While his projects have led him to perform in schools and hospitals, the cellist does not hesitate to make transdisciplinarity one of his spearheads, notably through the Love in Fragments project, alongside violist Gergana Gergova, choreographer Sommer Ulrickson and sculptor Alexander Polzin. His recording of Unsuk Chin’s Cello Concerto for Deutsche Grammophon received the BBC Music Magazine Award. Gehardt plays a Matteo Gofriller from 1710.
