World-renowned cellist Johannes Moser joins the Atlanta Music Project’s The Next Movement podcast to talk about life as a traveling solo artist (before, during and after COVID-19), discuss how working with a mental coach helped him prepare for his debut with the Berlin Philharmonic, and tells wonderful stories about his music education initiatives. Johannes also takes the time to answer an AMP student’s questions about how to set up your practice sessions and how one can work to develop a unique sound. Johannes first connected with AMP in 2012 when he conducted a masterclass with our students, while in town for a solo performance with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. 

Hailed by Gramophone Magazine as “one of the finest among the astonishing gallery of young virtuoso cellists”, German-Canadian cellist Johannes Moser has performed with the world’s leading orchestras such as the Berliner Philharmoniker, New York Philharmonic, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony, BBC Philharmonic at the Proms, London Symphony, Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, Koninklijk Concertgebouworkest, Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich, Tokyo NHK Symphony, Philadelphia and Cleveland Orchestras with conductors of the highest level including Riccardo Muti, Lorin Maazel, Mariss Jansons, Valery Gergiev, Zubin Mehta, Vladimir Jurowski, Franz Welser-Möst, Christian Thielemann, Pierre Boulez, Paavo Jarvi, Semyon Bychkov, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, and Gustavo Dudamel.
