• Young Danish cellist honrary professor

    2nd of December 2014 · tags:

    On 10 December the Academy will appoint young Danish cellist Andreas Brantelid as honorary professor. This will take place in connection with a public masterclass 2:30 to 4:00 p.m., followed by a reception and a concert in Kammermusiksalen, Concert Hall Aarhus. Admission is free.

    Cello Professor at the Academy Henrik Brendstrup says: "With Andreas Brantelids appointment we will associate one of the greatest soloist talents on the international music scene to the Academy. Due to his young age Brantelid is not the typical choice as honorary professor, but the cello students will encounter a great musician who has only just begun a great career and which comes with completely fresh experience from the life as a touring artist."

    Andreas Brantelid was born in 1987 and began early to play the cello, at first with his father, cellist Ingemar Brantelid. Already at age 14 he made his debut as an orchestral soloist, playing the Elgar Cello Concerto with Det Kongelige Kapel. Since then he has played with all the major orchestras in Scandinavia as well as numerous major orchestras in Europe and around the world. He is also a frequent chamber musician and has performed at several festivals.
