About

"The most remarkable virtuoso in the relatively unchronicled history of his instrument"
--The New Yorker
 
In demand as both a performer and a composer, Edgar Meyer has formed a role in the music world unlike any other. A four-time Grammy(r) winner, Mr. Meyer's unparalleled technique and musicianship in combination with his gift for composition have brought him to the fore, where he is appreciated by a vast, varied audience. His uniqueness in the field was recognized by an Avery Fisher Career Grant in 1994, the Avery Fisher Prize in 2000, and a MacArthur "Genius" Award in 2002. In 2013, he won the Best Folk Album Grammy(r) for The Goat Rodeo Sessions, his Sony Classical collaboration with Yo-Yo Ma, Stuart Duncan, and Chris Thile. This is the second award he has shared with Ma, the first being the 2000 Best Classical Crossover Album award for Appalachian Journey.
 
Last heard at the Kennedy Center in 2007 with pianist Emanuel Ax, Meyer returns for a solo recital with a program that includes Bach's breathtaking Suite for Cello No. 1, BWV 1007 and a new work.
