Matt Haimovitz & Uccello


Montreal QC CANADA

MATT HAIMOVITZ is Professor of Cello at the Schulich School of Music at McGill University in Montreal where he founded his all-cello ensemble Uccello which has performed with him from Jazz at Lincoln Centre to Seattle's Tractor Tavern as well as on two previous recordings for Oxingale, the label Haimovitz founded with composer Luna Pearl Woolf. Haimovitz is acclaimed for his visionary approach, groundbreaking collaborations and innovative recording projects. From his debut at the age of 13, as soloist with Zubin Mehta and the Israel Philharmonic and his first recording for Deutsche Grammophon, Haimovitz has gone on to perform on the world's most esteemed stages. In 2000, he made waves with his Bach 'Listening-Room' Tour, for which Haimovitz took Bach's beloved cello suites out of the concert hall and into clubs across the U.S., Canada, and the U.K. Haimovitz was the first classical artist to play at New York's infamous CBGB club, in a performance filmed by ABC News' 'Nightline.' On March 22, he will premiere a new cello concerto by Denys Bouliane with the Montreal Symphony and Kent Nagano.
