Meet Gwen Krosnick, cellist.

Gwen returns as a performing member of the faculty during the first session of our Young Artist Chamber Music Program, June 23 – July 21, 2024.

In her words…

“It’s been a wonderful and intensely busy season with the Cassatt Quartet, with lots of inspiring concerts, teaching, and rehearsing all over the East Coast and as far afield as West Texas! Right now we’re deep into working on amazing music by four living women composers — Joan Tower, Tania León, Victoria Bond, and Wang Jie — for a program coming up at Symphony Space with the incredible Ursula Oppens (March 12th, if you’re nearby!).

Next season, I’m looking forward to a series of my own recitals in New York, Ohio, and Massachusetts, playing and making a recording of solo cello works of Rudd Moore, Shapey, Martino, and León. This coming fall, I’m joining the faculty at Columbia University, teaching cello and chamber music as part of their Music Performance Program.

I’m so excited to have a central anchor for teaching as part of my artistic life here at home! Between the CSQ, the Columbia job, and living in the beautiful woods of far-northern Westchester with my dog, Anya, life between Kneisel Hall summers is pretty beautiful. (Still…joyfully looking forward to being in Blue Hill with you all!)”
