Interview with Winnipeg's Classic 107- Chris Wolf

The cellist Matt Haimovitz has been hailed by critics as a ferociously talented cellist, who brings his megawatt sound and his uncommon expressive gifts to a vast variety of musical styles. In addition to a gruelling touring schedule pre COVID, he also teaches an award winning cello studio at McGill's Schulich School of Music.

 

Haimovitz made his debut with the Israeli Philharmonic under the direction of Zubin Mehta at the age of 13, and has gone on to perform as soloist with the Berlin Philharmonic, the New York Philharmonic, and the Boston Symphony to name just a few. He is a graduate of the Julliard School where he studied with the renowned cellist Leonard Rose, and graduated from Harvard Magna Cum Laude.

 

He has recorded several CDs on various labels and has just recently put out a sumptuously gorgeous album of French Music called "Mon Ami, Mon Amour."

 

Winnipeg Classic 107 - Intermezzo host Chris Wolf had the opportunity to chat with Haimovitz about the album "Mon Ami, Mon Amour." Read the full article and see the complete conversation in the attached video.
