    When Pablo Ferrández recently made his debut with the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra, conductor Christoph Eschenbach couldn’t get over his enthusiasm: “He is the top young cellist and simply has everything: brilliant technique, deep musicality, and overwhelming charisma.” Anne-Sophie Mutter, who performed Brahms’s Double Concerto with the young Spaniard, likewise praises his large sound, cultivated vibrato, and flawless fingering technique. Born in Madrid in 1991, he studied at the Escuela Superior de Música Reina Sofía in his hometown and with Frans Helmerson at the Kronberg Academy. He has been a prize winner at the Moscow Tchaikovsky Competition and the Paulo Cello Competition; in 2016 he was named Young Artist of the Year at the International Classical Music Awards. Ferrández has worked with the London and Israel Philharmonics, the Berlin Konzerthaus Orchestra, and the St. Petersburg Philharmonic and with the conductors Valery Gergiev, Vladimir Jurowski, Zubin Mehta, and Yuri Temirkanov. And now, with his debut at LUCERNE FESTIVAL, the next step in his career awaits him.
