The cellist Darrett Adkins has appeared around the world to critical acclaim in a wide-ranging repertory. He has made concerto appearances with the Orchestra of St. Luke's, Tokyo Philharmonic, Tochio Soloisten, National Symphony of Brazil, Tanglewood Music Center Orchestra, North Carolina Symphony and the New Hampshire Symphony, among others. He was the Cellist of Honor at the 2002 Rio International Cello Encounter, giving concerts and teaching master-classes. His Oslo début in 1997 was attended by King Harald. He has given many important first performances, including the first New York performance of Luciano Berio's Sequenza XIV, the world première of Andrew Mead's concerto, the American première of Donatoni's concerto "Un Ruisseau sur L'Escalier" at Tanglewood with George Benjamin conducting, and during his tenure with the FLUX Quartet, the historic first complete performance of Morton Feldman's monumental Second Quartet, lasting just over six continuous hours. With the orchestra Cleveland's Red he helped to develop Schubert Songbook, a semi-staged dramatic work for soprano and solo cellist featuring the music of Berio and Schubert in new and unusual orchestrations. He made his Aspen début at just three days notice, performing Boulez's Messagesquisse with James Conlon conducting. He has appeared on Korean national television in concerto appearances and recital performances, and is a current member of the Oberlin Trio and Zephyr Trio. He has made solo and chamber music recordings for RCA, Mode, Cold Blue, Tzadic, Naxos, MMC, Koch, and CRI. His festival appearances include the Oslo Chamber Music Festival, Ojai, Melbourne Festival, Aspen, Tanglewood and many others. He has recently become very interested in teaching the cello, and is a faculty member of the Juilliard School, Oberlin Conservatory and Aspen Music Festival.
