Oliver Herbert

Cellist Oliver Herbert, from San Francisco, is quickly building a reputation as an artist with a distinct voice and individual style--“From his opening notes it was immediately apparent that Herbert has a very vocal approach to his playing and regardless of the technical demands he makes his cello sing”. Performing a wide range of repertoire, Oliver’s recent solo and recital appearances include debuts with the San Francisco Symphony, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Warsaw Philharmonic, Las Vegas Philharmonic, Curtis Symphony Orchestra, San Francisco Symphony SoundBox, and the Dame Myra Hess Recital Series in Chicago, among others. 
Oliver has worked with renowned conductors such as Michael Tilson Thomas, Juanjo Mena, and Yannick Nézet-Séguin. As a chamber musician, Oliver has performed with some of the leading musicians of our time including Shmuel Ashkenasi, Franklin Cohen, Pamela Frank, Miriam Fried, Nobuko Imai, and Meng-Chieh Liu.​ In addition, Oliver frequently collaborates with pianist Xiaohui Yang as a recital duo. This season, they will perform on tour in both the United States and Greece.

​ Oliver is frequently invited to participate in music festivals including the Caramoor Festival, ChamberFest Cleveland, Krzyżowa Music, Music in the Vineyards, Open Chamber Music at IMS Prussia Cove, the Ravinia Festival Steans Music Institute, and the Verbier Festival Academy. In addition to being a fellow at the Ravinia Festival, Oliver was also invited to perform on a tour with renowned violinist Miriam Fried, the festival’s director. At the 2017 Verbier Festival, Oliver was awarded the Prix Jean-Nicolas Firmenich.

Oliver’s most recent competition awards include a top prize and special prize in the XI Witold Lutoslawski International Cello Competition in 2018, first prize and Pablo Casals prize in the 2015 Irving M. Klein International String Competition, and a top prize in the 2015 Stulberg International String Competition.

Oliver currently is under the tutelage of Carter Brey and Peter Wiley at the Curtis Institute of Music. Before starting his studies at Curtis, Oliver was a student of Clive Greensmith at the Colburn School. He currently plays on a 1769 Guadagnini cello that belonged to the great Italian cellist Antonio Janigro, on generous loan from the Janigro family.
