Meet The Artists - Johannes Moser

Johannes Moser
Hailed by Gramophone Magazine as "one of the finest among the astonishing gallery of young virtuoso cellists," German-Canadian cellist Johannes Moser has performed with the world’s leading orchestras and works regularly with conductors of the highest caliber.
Known for his efforts to expand the reach of the classical genre, his passionate focus on new music, and his commitment to reaching out to young audiences, Moser aims to present classical music in ways with which listeners of all ages can engage and connect. Recent and notable projects include the premiere of Enrico Chapela's electric cello concerto Magnetar with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and new works with Julia Wolfe and Andrew Norman.
Moser won the top prize at the 2002 Tchaikovsky competition and was the recipient of the 2014 Brahms prize. His recordings have earned him two ECHO Klassik awards and the Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik. He recently signed an exclusive contract with Pentatone and was subsequently named their artist of the season. In September 2015 he released his first recording for the label, a disc of Dvořák and Lalo cello concertos.
