Biography

Born in Latvia, Mischa Maisky has the distinction of being the only cellist in the world to have studied with both Mstislav Rostropovich and Gregor Piatigorsky. Truly a worldclass musician and a regular guest at many major International Festivals, he has collaborated with the most outstanding conductors. His long and illustrious career has brought him many honours and awards, just some of which include: the 46th Istanbul Music Festival Lifetime Achievement Award in 2018, the title of Honorary Membership of the Royal Academy of Music in 2019, Accademico Onorario of the Accademia di Santa Cecilia and the Honorary Fellow Award of the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance. Maisky’s recordings have enjoyed world-wide critical acclaim and have been awarded several prizes. In June 2021 a set of complete recordings on DG with over 40 CDs was released.
