About the Artist

Presented by the Ridgefield Symphony Orchestra
The Ridgefield Symphony Orchestra performs Webern “Six Pieces for Orchestra”, Respighii “Trittico Botticelliano” and Haydn “Cello Concert in C Major” with acclaimed soloist Jay Campbell, and all under the direction of Maestro Yuga Cohler.  Tickets available at ridgefieldsymphony.org or by calling 203.438.3889

Praised by The New York Times for his “electrifying performances” which “conveyed every nuance,” American cellist Jay Campbell has already forged a reputation as a spellbinding artist. A 2016 recipient of the Avery Fisher Career Grant and 2017 artiste étoile (artist in residence) for the Lucerne Festival, the youngest ever to have achieved that distinction, Mr. Campbell also served a highly successful stint as artistic director of Ligeti Forward for the New York Philharmonic’s 2016 BIENNIAL, underscoring his outstanding contributions as both curator and performer. Working closely with then Music Director Alan Gilbert, Mr. Campbell created a three-concert series which explored Hungarian composer György Ligeti as a fountainhead of modern music. In addition to putting his exceptional musical knowledge to work, Mr. Campbell was also featured soloist on the second program performing Ligeti’s Cello Concerto with the orchestra.

Recipient of awards from the BMI and ASCAP foundations, Jay Campbell was also First Prize winner of the 2012 Concert Artist Guild auditions, and Second Prize winner of the 2015 Walter W. Naumburg International Cello Competition, competing against more than a hundred cellists worldwide.

Born in Berkeley, California, Mr. Campbell began playing the cello at the age of eight at the Crowden School in Berkeley. He holds an Artist Diploma, as well as bachelor’s and master’s degrees from The Juilliard School where he was a student of Fred Sherry. Mr. Campbell plays on a cello crafted in the 1750s by Italian luthier Paolo Antonio Testore of Milan.
