David Geringas

Conductor, Cello


The Lithuanian cellist and conductor David Geringas belongs to the musical elite of today. An unusually broad repertoire from the early Baroque to the contemparary is testament to the flexibility and curiosity of the artist. His intellectual rigor, his stylistic versality, his melodical feeling and sensuousness of his tone have brought him praise the world over.

The Rostropovich pupil and gold-medal winner of the 1970 Tchaikovsky Competition can now look back on a career that spanned decades.

David Geringas has performed world-wide with some of the leading orchestras, and important conductors of out time. His discography, which now approaches 100 CDs, includes many that have honored with important prizes, including the Grand Prix du Dusque for his recording of the 12 cello concertos of Luigi Boccherini, the Diapason d’Or d’Année for the chamber music of Henri Dutilleux, and the prize of the year from the Deutschen Schallplattenkritik for his recording of the cello concertos by Hans Pritzner. In 2013, David Geringas received the “Echo Klassic” for the best chamber music recording of 20-21. Century (Braunfels/Strauss, Profil Edition Günter Hänssler).
