Sony Classical is proud to announce the exclusive signing of 29-year-old award-winning cellist Pablo Ferrández.

The musician whom Anne-Sophie Mutter described as “someone truly special” (and with whom she has recently performed Brahms’ Double Concerto and Beethoven’s Triple Concerto) was a prize-winner at the XV International Tchaikovsky Competition, and in 2016 was named the Young Artist of the Year by the International Classical Music Awards.

He is building a prominent career and has performed in many of the major concert halls of the world with conductors such as Zubin Mehta, Gustavo Dudamel, Christoph Eschenbach and Daniele Gatti, and has appeared in chamber concerts with artists of the stature of Martha Argerich, Gidon Kremer, Vadim Repin, Yuja Wang and Khatia Buniatishvili. Orchestras with which he has worked include the London Philharmonic, LA Phil (at the Hollywood Bowl), Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, Israel Philharmonic and the Rotterdam Philharmonic.

In summer 2020 Ferrández will record his first studio album for Sony Classical in Berlin. The album will be released in January 2021.
