Renowned for fresh, brilliant interpretations of the greatest orchestral music, the Academy of St Martin in the Fields has gained an enviable reputation for its distinctive, polished, and refined sound. American Cellist Gary Hoffman will join with the Academy for their US tour.

Making his musical debut at the Wigmore Hall in London at the age of fifteen, quickly followed by New York, Gary became the youngest faculty appointee in the history of the Indiana University School of Music at the age of twenty-two. After winning the Premier Grand Prix of the Rostropovich International Competition in Paris in 1986, he embarked on an international career, appearing with the world’s most noted orchestras, in major recital and chamber music series and at prestigious festivals. Gary Hoffman’s style is characterized by fullness of sound, instrumental mastery and exceptional artistic sensibility.
