Jay Campbell, cello, is the only musician ever to receive two prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grants, as a soloist and as a member of the JACK Quartet. He made his New York Philharmonic debut performing Tan Dun’s “Silk Road Encounters” from Crouching Tiger Concerto and later worked with Music Director Alan Gilbert as Artistic Director for Ligeti Forward, a series featured on the New York Philharmonic Biennale at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. In 2017 he was Artist-in-Residence at the Lucerne Festival, the youngest musician ever to have achieved that distinction, and in 2018 he made his Berlin debut with Deutsches Symphonie-Orchestre Berlin. This season he was co-curator with composer John Adams of the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s Green Umbrella series. Dedicated to the music of our time, Mr. Cambell has premiered nearly one hundred works to date – including music of Pulitzer Prize winner David Lang – and has worked with such leading new music groups as ICE, Ensemble InterContemporain, Da Capo Chamber Players, and the Argento Ensemble. In addition to the JACK Quartet, Mr. Campbell is a member of JCT Trio. His close association with John Zorn resulted in the 2015 release of Hen to Pan featuring works written for him, which made the New York Times “Best Classical Music Recordings of 2015.” He recently recorded Marc-André Dalbavie’s Cello Concerto with the Seattle Symphony.
