Acclaimed worldwide for his profound musicianship and technical mastery, British cellist Steven Isserlis enjoys a distinguished career as a soloist, chamber musician, educator, author and broadcaster. His worldwide career embraces concertos with the world’s leading orchestras along with solo and chamber music. He also is a pioneer of contemporary works and active in educational projects.
