Gabriel Martins cello

Cellist Gabriel Martins has established himself as one of the world’s most compelling young artists, with a deep commitment to the timeless masterpieces of classical music. His artistry has already been recognized through an extensive list of accolades including the Concert Artists Guild – Young Classical Artists Trust Grand Prize, the Sphinx Competition Gold Medal, the David Popper International Cello Competition Gold Medal, the International Tchaikovsky Competition for Young Musicians Silver Medal, the Schadt String Competition Gold Medal, among others.


His current season includes works by Dvořák, Elgar, Haydn, Schumann, Shostakovich, Tchaikovsky, and Villa-Lobos. Martins debuted his first complete Beethoven Cycle, performing and recording all of the works for Cello and Piano with Audrey Vardanega. In addition to his commitment to the great classics of the cello repertoire, Martins composes his own works and arranges many others. His “Songs of Solitude” received their World Premiere in the spring of 2021 in collaboration with the Brooklyn Public Library, and his new cello arrangements of Bach’s Solo Violin Sonatas and Partitas have received high acclaim and a feature in The Strad Magazine.
