Cellist Johannes Moser has signed with the acclaimed Dutch label PENTATONE as an exclusive recording artist. His first release under the new deal will be of the Dvorák and Lalo cello concertos, recorded with the Prague Philharmonia and conductor Jakub Hruša. The album, in SACD and as high definition download, will be available in September 2015.

Johannes regularly performs with the world’s leading orchestras including the Berlin, New York, Los Angeles and Munich philharmonics; Chicago, London, Bavarian Radio, Frankfurt Radio and NHK symphonies; Royal Concertgebouw; and the Philadelphia and Cleveland Orchestras. He recently made a critically acclaimed Boston Symphony debut performing Saint-Saëns’ Cello Concerto No. 1.  The Boston Globe’s Jeremy Eichler writes that Moser, “gave the work a deluxe and rhapsodic treatment… [it was a] virtuosic tour.” David Wright, in Boston’s Classical Review, says, “Addressing his instrument with both poise and emotional involvement, Moser played expressively, with a mellow, unforced tone that nevertheless carried well in the large hall.”

Dirk Jan Vink, PENTATONE’s Managing Director said, “We are thrilled to welcome Johannes on board. Such a talented artist whom The New York Times declared, ‘brought the house down,’ at Carnegie Hall. It is a privilege to be able to work with him.”

 

Johannes said, “With PENTATONE, I believe I have found the right partner - one with whom I share the same artistic beliefs.  I am looking forward to recording the major concerto repertoire with a team that also strives for excellence without compromise when it comes to sound and performance. I am excited about this signing and the music we will create in the future.”
