Julia Bruskin   cello

Since her concerto debut with the Boston Symphony Orchestra at age 17, cellist Julia Bruskin has established herself as one of the premiere cellists of her generation. She performed Samuel Barber’s Cello Concerto with conductor Jahja Ling at Avery Fisher Hall and has also been soloist with the Nashville Symphony, Utah Symphony, Virginia Symphony, and Pacific Symphony among others. Her recent CD of music by Beethoven, Brahms, and Dohnanyi was praised by Fanfare Magazine for its “exquisite beauty of sound and expression”. A founding member of the critically acclaimed Claremont Trio, Ms. Bruskin has recorded and toured extensively with the Trio, which recorded the Beethoven “Triple” Concerto this spring with the San Francisco Ballet Orchestra. Ms. Bruskin plays frequent solo recitals with her husband, Aaron Wunsch, including tours in Asia and concerts in New York, Texas, Massachusetts, and New Jersey. She completed the five-year double degree program at Juilliard and Columbia University and is on the faculty at the Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College.
