Jay Campbell


Praised by The New York Times for his “electrifying performances” which “conveyed every nuance,” cellist Jay Campbell is the First Prize Winner of the 2012 CAG Victor Elmaleh Competition. His eclectic musical interests and diverse spectrum of repertoire have led to collaborations with musicians ranging from Elliott Carter, Pierre Boulez and David Lang to members of Radiohead and Einstürzende Neubauten. Recent highlights include his New York Philharmonic debut at Avery Fisher Hall (Tan Dun’s “Silk Road Encounters” from Crouching Tiger Concerto) and a concerto with the New York Youth Symphony at Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium. Campbell has premiered nearly one hundred new works, including concerti by Chris Rogerson and David Lang.
