The Boston Globe declares, “with virtuoso chops, rock-star charisma, and an appetite for pushing her instrument to the edge of avant-garde adventurousness, Maya Beiser is the post-modern diva of the cello.” Throughout her adventurous and versatile career, she has reimagined the concert experience, commissioning and performing hundreds of new works written for her by today’s leading composers. Raised in the Galilee Mountains in Israel, surrounded by the music and rituals of Jews, Muslims, and Christians, while studying classical cello repertoire, Beiser has dedicated her work to reinventing solo cello performance in the mainstream classical arena.
