Pablo Ferrández at Grant Park Music Festival

The 25-year old Spanish sensation, cellist Pablo Ferrández, makes his Festival debut with Prokofiev’s rarely heard Sinfonia “Concertante”, Vaughan Williams’ powerful “Symphony No. 4” and Ives’ “The Unanswered Question.”

Recently awarded the coveted ICMA 2016 “Young Artist of the Year”, and prizewinner at the XV International Tchaikovsky Competition and at the V Paulo International Cello Competition, Pablo Ferrández announces himself as a musician of stature. Praised by his authenticity and hailed by the critics as “one of the top cellists” (Rémy Louis, Diapason Magazine), Ferrández is building a distinguished career through collaborations with internationally renowned artists and world-leading orchestras.

He has appeared as a soloist with the Mariinsky Orchestra, Vienna Symphony Orchestra, St. Petersburg Philharmonic, Stuttgart Philharmonic, Kremerata Baltica, Helsinki Philharmonic, Tapiola Sinfonietta, Hyogo Performing Arts Center Orchestra, Mexico National Symphony Orchestra, Spanish National Orchestra, RTVE Orchestra, Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, and collaborated with such artists as Zubin Mehta, Valery Gergiev, Yuri Temirkanov, Adam Fischer, Heinrich Schiff, Dennis Russell Davies, John Storgårds, Gidon Kremer, Ivry Gitlis and Anne-Sophie Mutter.
