David Cohen

Born in Belgium, David Cohen made his debut as a soloist with the National Orchestra of Belgium aged just nine. Later he appeared as soloist with the Saint Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC Symphony Orchestra, Zurich Chamber Orchestra and Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra. He graduated from the Yehudi Menuhin School and London's Guildhall School of Music as a pupil of Oleg Kogan. Other important teachers have included William Pleeth, Natalia Gutman, Gary Hoffman and Steven Isserlis. Having graduated, Cohen was awarded the Guildhall's most prestigious token of recognition, the Gold Medal, which had earlier gone to such musicians as Jacqueline du Pré. He has in addition won more than 25 prizes in international cello competitions. He is Artistic Director of the Melchior Ensemble, which consists of leading young musicians. In 2001, David Cohen was chosen to play in the London Philharmonia as its youngest ever principal cello.
