The Swedish cellist Jakob Koranyi has firmly established himself on the classical music scene as one of Europe’s most interesting young soloists. Acclaimed for his commanding virtuosity and passion for diverse and innovative programs, he has toured Europe extensively performing in recital as well as a soloist in Vienna, Cologne, Hamburg, Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Stockholm, and Luxembourg. This season he performs Brahms’ Double Concerto with the Norrköping Symphony Orchestra in Sweden and Beethoven’s Triple Concerto with the Royal Northern Sinfonia in Britain. Orchestral highlights of previous seasons include performances with the Stockholm Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Orchèstre de Paris, Gävle Symphony Orchestra, Filharmonia Veneta, Weimar Staatskapelle, and Gothenburg, Malmö, Helsingborg, and Norrköping symphony orchestras, working with conductors such as Marc Soustrot, Okku Kamu, Eiji Oue, Johannes Debus, Michael Francis, Krzysztof Urbanski, Lionel Bringuier, Andrew Manze, Yordan Kamdzhalov, Stefan Solyom, Thomas Söndergaard, Susanna Mälkki, and Christian Lindberg. He is also well known for his work with artists of other disciplines, including collaborations with dancer Heather Ware for a special performance of works by Bach, Ligeti, and Salonen for the Netherlands Chamber Music Foundation, and with choreographers Andrea Leine and Harijono Roebana and the Dance Forum Taipei for Tan Dun’s Snow in June, a contemporary work for solo cello, percussionists, and dancers. A former member of Chamber Music Society Two, Mr. Koranyi plays a Giovanni Grancino cello built in 1692 in Milan.
