A player of dazzling virtuosity and magnetic expressivity, Ariel Barnes is, in the words of Maestro Bramwell Tovey, “the outstanding Canadian cellist of his generation.”
Canadians have noticed. His recordings have garnered two Western Canadian Music Awards, and a JUNO nomination, and are met with critical acclaim. After taking in his 2017 Winnipeg performance, Canadians eagerly lined up to see him perform with MCO in venues across BC; a collaboration that culminated in the CD recording of Michael Oesterle’s Cello Concerto.
Audiences will have another chance at this concert to marvel at Ariel under the spotlight, as he premieres a new cello concerto by the popular Canadian composer Marcus Goddard.
