About The Event
CME presents outstanding young cellist Brannon Cho, First Prize winner of the prestigious 2018 Paulo International Cello Competition and prizewinner at the Queen Elisabeth, Naumberg, and Cassadó Competitions.
Featuring Victor Santiago Asuncion, Piano, and a program of works by Boccherini, Pintscher, Brahms, Britten, and Sarasate.
Described by Arto Noras as “a finished artist, ready to play in any hall in the world,” cellist Brannon Cho has emerged as an outstanding musician of his generation. He has appeared as a soloist with many of the top orchestras around the world, including the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra, Minnesota Orchestra, Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra, Brussels Philharmonic, and Orchestre Philharmonique Royale Liège, under world-renowned conductors such as Susanna Mälkki, Stéphane Denève, and Christian Arming. In 2015, he was awarded the CME International Performing Arts Grant.
Born in New Jersey, Brannon received his Bachelor’s degree from Northwestern University’s Bienen School of Music under Hans Jørgen Jensen. He is now one of only two candidates for the prestigious Artist Diploma program at the New England Conservatory, where he studies with Laurence Lesser. Brannon performs on a rare cello made by Antonio Casini in 1668 in Modena, Italy.
