SOLO REPERTOIRE

The following list is David’s current repertoire. Should there be any pieces not listed that you would wish for him to perform, David is always happy to expand his repertoire!

David is very passionate in the prospect of commissioning works for the cello (with Orchestra and solo) and always enjoys a challenge. This is one of the reasons why he is also a very sought after solo performer of contemporary music. Three concertos have already been written for him, and another possible concerto by the composer Frederique Dhaene is in progress. Should anyone have any queries or wish to be involved in a similar project, please do not hesitate to contact David or his agent through this website.
