April 13, Friday, 7:30 pm: Dane Johansen, CCS Collegiate Division winner 2002, in Recital

Dane Johansen joined The Cleveland Orchestra at the beginning of March 2016.  He was cellist with the Escher String Quartet for five years, during which he and his colleagues were BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists, and also recipients of an Avery Fisher Career Grant and the Martin Segal Award from Lincoln Center.  For many years, Dane Johansen has dedicated time and energy exploring Johann Sebastian Bach’s Six Suites for Solo Cello.  He performed them at New York’s Alice Tully Hall in 2010 and also throughout his 580-mile pilgrimage along the Camino de Santiago in Northern Spain in 2014; the story of his adventure on the Camino with Bach was made into a documentary film called Strangers on the Earth.  A native of Fairbanks, Alaska, Dane Johansen studied at the Cleveland Institute of Music, Conservatoire National Supérieur de Paris, and at the Juilliard School, where he earned his artist diploma.  He also studied privately with Bernard Greenhouse.

The evening’s program will offer works for solo cello and duos in collaboration with colleagues from The Cleveland Orchestra.
