Paul Neubauer

Viola | Chamber Music

Violist Paul Neubauer’s exceptional musicality and effortless playing distinguish him as one of his generation’s quintessential artists. This season he will give the world premiere of a new viola concerto by Aaron Jay Kernis with the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra (conducted by Roberto Abbado), followed by performances with the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, the Chautauqua Symphony, and the Idyllwild Arts Orchestra. He also performs in recital with pianist Anne-Marie McDermott and in a newly formed trio with soprano Susanna Phillips and Anne-Marie McDermott, which performs a wide range of repertoire including salon style songs for voice, viola, and piano. He will be seen performing salon music for viola and ensemble in The Dark Side, a film starring Edoardo Ballerini and Ali Ahn that will be released in 2014. Appointed principal violist of the New York Philharmonic at age 21, he has appeared as soloist with over 100 orchestras including the New York, Los Angeles, and Helsinki philharmonics; National, St. Louis, Detroit, Dallas, San Francisco, and Bournemouth symphonies; and Santa Cecilia, English Chamber, and Beethovenhalle orchestras.
