Cellist Julian Schwarz Live in Studio


Cellist Julian Schwarz will join us live on radio during Classical Music with Matt Jackfert starting at 2:06 PM this Friday (9/18).

Schwarz will discuss his upcoming performance of the Dvořák Cello Concerto with the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra as well as his career that’s been skyrocketing in the short time since his orchestral debut at age 11.

Schwarz made that debut with the Seattle Symphony while playing the Saint-Saens Cello Concerto under the direction of his father, renowned conductor, Gerard Schwarz.
