“…David Cohen, one of the most talented young cellists I know. He was a student at my School for some years, and is altogether a remarkable young man, a remarkable performer and already an outstanding cellist.”
Lord Menuhin (dec. 98)
“Cohen’s musicality and his prizewinning virtuosity…”
The Times (2004)
David Cohen has established a reputation as one of the most charismatic and exciting young cellists of today.
In his remarkable career, David has worked as a soloist with some of the most distinguished conductors in the industry such as Lord Menuhin, Mstislav Rostropovich, Walter Weller, Sir Charles Mackerras, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Christophe von Dohnanyi, Pedro Halffter and Martin Brabbins among others.
Hailed by critics as “Magnificent”, Gramophone, “demonstrates total commitment, combining vitality with expressive feeling in the most spontaneous manner”, the Strad, “an individual, and an exceptionally gifted one,” New York Stereo Review.
Born in the town of Tournai in Belgium, David made his solo debut with the Belgium National Orchestra at the age of nine.
