Chamber Music Cincinnati presents Awadagin Pratt, Piano and Zuill Bailey, Cello

Starting September 20th, all patrons (age 12 and over), employees, contractors, vendors, and volunteers must wear a mask AND provide proof of full vaccination status OR a negative test result within the past 72 hours to attend performances at Memorial Hall.

“Cellist Zuill Bailey, with understanding and often brilliant accompaniment from Awadagin Pratt, offers a whole disc of cello-and-piano music by Brahms…Bailey’s masterly performance of the E minor Cello Sonata…sounds totally natural and unforced…” – Gramophone

Double Grammy-winning cellist Zuill Bailey is a internationally renowned soloist, recitalist, artistic director and teacher. He has been featured with the Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Detroit, Indianapolis, Toronto, and Israel symphony orchestras, with conductors Itzhak Perlman, Alan Gilbert, Neeme Jarvi, Giancarlo Guerrero, Jun Markl, Carlos Kalmar; and with artists Leon Fleisher, Jaime Laredo, the Juilliard String Quartet, Lynn Harrell and Janos Starker, among many.

Zuill made his concerto debut at Carnegie Hall performing the U.S. premiere of Mikos Theodorakis’ Rhapsody for Cello and Orchestra, presented the U.S. premiere of Nico Muhly’s Cello Concerto with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra. He holds Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from the Peabody Conservatory and the Juilliard School. He is Director of the Center for Arts Entrepreneurship at the University of Texas at El Paso.

Recordings include the Bach Cello Suites and Britten Cello Symphony/Sonata CD with pianist Natasha Paremski (Billboard Classical #1). live performances of the Muhly Cello Concerto (World Premiere), Brahms Sextets with the Cypress Strings Quartet, and the Elgar and Dvořák Cello Concertos, called by Gramophone the new “reference” recording.

Broadcast appearances include a recurring role on the HBO series Oz, NBC’s Homicide, A&E, NHK TV in Japan, a live broadcast of the Beethoven Triple Concerto with Itzhak Perlman conducting the Israel Philharmonic, as well as NPR’s Morning Edition, Tiny Desk Concert, Performance Today, and Saint Paul Sunday.

International renowned pianist Awadagin Pratt is acclaimed for his musical insight and intensely involving performances in recital and with symphony orchestras. He began studying piano at six and violin at nine. He entered the University of Illinois at 16, studying piano, violin, and conducting, later becoming the first student at Johns Hopkins University’s Peabody Institute to receive diplomas in all three performance areas.

In 1992, Awadagin won the Naumburg International Piano Competition and in 1994 was awarded an Avery Fisher Career Grant. He has performed at Lincoln Center, the Kennedy Center, and Chicago’s Orchestra Hall; with the New York Philharmonic and the Pittsburgh, Atlanta, Baltimore, St. Louis, National, Detroit symphonies; and in Germany, Italy, Japan, Switzerland, Poland, Israel, Columbia and South Africa.

He was one of four artists to perform at a White House classical music event hosted by First Lady Michelle Obama for guests including President Obama and performed twice there at the invitation of President and Mrs. Clinton. His multi-media work Black in America received its world premiere with the New World Symphony in 2021.

Recordings include the Brahms Sonatas for Cello and Piano with Zuill Bailey for and the music of Judith Lang Zaimont with the Harlem Quartet. He is Professor of Piano at the College-Conservatory of Music, and Artistic Director of the annual Art of the Piano Festival, one of Cincinnati’s premier arts events.
