Johannes Moser

"Then there were the bravura flourishes of the strapping and exuberant German-Canadian cellist Johannes Moser...who threw himself bodily into a performance of Shostakovich’s Cello Concerto No. 1. "
The New York Times

"His tone was big and warm where needed, and he proved himself capable of some Rostropovich-like wild abandon…he was consistently eloquent."

The Telegraph

Opus 3 Artists welcomes JOHANNES MOSER to our instrumentalist roster for representation in the Americas. A true artist for the 21st century, this German-Canadian cellist is firmly established in the classical canon while passionately committed to new music and broadening the reach of traditional repertoire to a new generation. Praised for his musical sensitivity and the skilled expressiveness of his playing, Moser is hailed by Gramophone Magazine as "one of the finest among the astonishing gallery of young virtuoso cellists."

Johannes Moser regularly works with conductors of the highest caliber and has appeared with the world's leading orchestras, which in North America alone includes the Chicago Symphony, Cleveland Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Philadelphia Orchestra; and elsewhere boasts the Berlin Philharmonic, Bayerischer Rundfunk, Munich Philharmonic, Royal Concertgebouw, London Symphony, and NHK Symphony in Tokyo, among others. This season, Mr. Moser makes his debut with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and is the featured soloist on the Dresden Philharmonic U.S. tour.?

Community outreach is at the foundation of Moser's artistic mission and central to his musical identity. Through school visits, master classes, special performances, and other locally-tailored outreach activities, he is as committed to engaging with students and young people as he is to connecting with long-time audiences and patrons.

Moser is the recipient of the prestigious 2014 Brahms prize. He first came to international attention when he won the 2002 Tchaikovsky Competition, and his recordings on Hänssler Classics have received two ECHO Klassik awards and the German Record Critics' Award (Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik). He recently began recording for the Pentatone label.
