Amir Eldan

Cello

Oberlin Conservatory (USA)


Amir Eldan has cultivated a performing career as notable for its breadth as for its excellence.  In 2011-12, he served as Principal Cellist of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra by invitation from Zubin Mehta and a year later, as guest Principal Cellist with the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra.  At age 22, he became the youngest member of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra in New York, when he won the position of Associate Principal Cellist and was invited by James Levine to perform with the MET Chamber Ensemble in Carnegie Hall.

As the winner of the Juilliard Competition, Mr. Eldan made his New York debut with the Brahms Double concerto in Lincoln Center and has performed the Six Bach Suites in a series of concerts worldwide.

Equally in demand as a chamber musician, he has collaborated in chamber music performances with members of the Cleveland, Guarneri and Juilliard String Quartets and the Beaux Arts Trio, pianist Richard Goode, and cellists Lynn Harrell and Steven Isserlis.

Recent music festivals appearances include Bowdoin, Giverny (France), La Jolla (California), Pilsen (Czech Republic), Prussia Cove (England), and West Cork (Ireland).  He also participated in the Marlboro music festival and toured with musicians from Marlboro.

Mr. Eldan was appointed Cello Professor at the Oberlin Conservatory in 2006 and currently serves as Director of the Strings Division.  He joined the Oberlin Trio in 2007 and has performed with the Trio throughout the U.S. and South Korea.  Mr. Eldan holds a Doctor of Music degree and Master of Music degree, both from Juilliard where he also served as a guest teacher.  His performances have been featured on public television and radio in the U.S., Europe and Israel.
