Rising cello star next on in concert club’s ruby celebratory season
GRANGE and District Concert Club continues its classy anniversary season with prizewinning Israeli cellist Adi Tal.
The rising string star appears on the Grange-over-Sands Victoria Hall stage on Friday, September 6 (8pm) with pianist Jan Rautio in the penultimate recital of the club’s 40th season.
Winner of the Muriel Taylor Cello Prize in London in 2008 and the 2012 Making Music Award for Young Concert Artists, Adi Tal is emerging as one of the most dynamic young cellists of her generation. She made her solo debut at the age of 12 with the Israel Chamber Orchestra, and has since performed with numerous ensembles and orchestras in Israel, including the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra, the Haifa Symphony Orchestra, and the Herzliya Chamber Orchestra, collaborating with conductors such as Aldo Ceccato and James Judd.
Adi has performed in prestigious venues such as Wigmore Hall, St Martin in the Fields, St George’s Bristol and the Louvre Pyramid in Paris and her solo and chamber music performances have also been broadcast on BBC Radio 3, Singaporean Radio, as well as Israeli Radio. This year Adi recorded a CD of flute trios for Meridian Records with Eyal Ein-Habar, principle flautist of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. Adi is also a member of the Rautio Piano Trio.
Born in Israel in 1986, Adi began her cello studies at the age of seven with Hillel Zori.
She has performed in master classes presented by luminaries such as Steven Isserlis and has studied at the Royal Northern College of Music with Ralph Kirshbaum and the Guildhall School of Music and Drama under David Takeno.
The final concert of the club’s ruby celebratory season is on October 11 and billed as a Celebration Choral Evening with award-winning Amabile Girls Choir and outstanding soprano Rachel Little.
Tickets at the door.
