Bryan Epperson, cello
One of Canada’s most charismatic chamber musicians, Bryan Epperson is principal cellist of both the orchestra of the Canadian Opera Company and, during the summer, that of the Santa Fé Opera. He made debuts in Milan, Venice, Siena and Florence at the recommendation of Claudio Abbado and, since then, has received regular invitations to perform throughout Europe and North America. Collaborations include performances with such legendary musicians as David and Igor Oistrakh, Christian Ferras and Tibor Varga. Bryan has recorded on the Naxos and Musica Viva labels and broadcast on NPR, BBC and the CBC. A graduate of the Curtis Institute of Music, Bryan’s initial studies were with Leonard Rose, André Navarra and George Neikrug. He subsequently served as an assistant to Antonio Janigro at the Salzburg Mozarteum. Bryan is devoted to both a 1752 Paulo Antonio Testore cello and a 928S Porsche of almost equivalent vintage.
