"His [Schnittke’s] grim sonata has become a favorite of cellists, but the dissonances–large sections of increasing minor seconds on cello, making a most uncomfortable tapestry–were built up by Adrian Daurov with the most serious intent. This was the first time I had heard the work live, and it came as a revelation."
A native of St.Petersburg, Russia, cellist ADRIAN DAUROV is one of the most dazzling artists of his generation.
The New York-based and Juilliard-trained, this Award-winning cellist, who has performed on major concert stages, like Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall, Merkin Hall, St.Petersburg Philharmonic as a soloist, recitalist and chamber musician, Adrian is a versatile player, who ilkes to step out of his main genre, and often performs with Pop and Rock artists, such as Alicia Keys, Josh Groban, Sarah Brightman, The Roots, The Trans-Siberian Orchestra and the Icelandic post-rock band Sigur Ros.
