Since her immigration to Israel in 1989, Ina-Esther Joost has been the principal cellist and frequent soloist of the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra IBA. German born, she studied with Fournier, Celibidache and Barenboim after receiving her Soloistʼs Diploma at the Stateʼs Music Academy Hamburg (Germany). Having won top prizes, including the Diploma of the Tchaikovsky Competition, Moscow, and first prize in the International Cello Competition Belgrade, she has been in high demand as a soloist in Europe, the USA, South Korea, Israel and Brazil, being accompanied by world-renowned symphony orchestras from Paris, Geneva, Hamburg, Berlin, Munich, Tokyo, Jerusalem and Rio de Janeiro. Following her performance at the World Cello Congress III in Baltimore, USA, in 2000, she was invited as a visiting professor at Towson University, MD, in 2001, played in concerts and festivals, and made her New York début with overwhelming success. Her recordings include French and Israeli compositions for cello solo (IMI), a CD with Romantic and Impressionistic music for cello and piano, the six suites by Bach, Nigunim for cello solo, and a CD with compositions by Gabriel Fauré for cello and piano (Naxos 8.570545). Many Israeli composers have dedicated solo works to her, and during recent years she has combined performing as a soloist and teaching master classes in the USA, Brazil (International Cello Encounter Rio de Janeiro), Mexico (2010), Poland, Germany (Bach Festival, 2011; 2013/14), France (2012 and 2013/14), Canada (2013) and China (2014).
