SERIES 2 | Masumi Per Rostad Talks Instruments with Cellist Johannes Moser

Take a look inside this cellist's case and see what makes his 330 year old cello so great


Grammy Award-winning, Japanese-Norwegian violist Masumi Per Rostad is an active performer and professor of viola and chamber music at the Eastman School of Music. As a former member of the Pacifica Quartet for almost two decades, he also founded DoCha, a chamber music festival in Champaign, Illinois.

Amidst his busy schedule, Masumi sits down with his friends and colleagues to discuss the ins and outs of their instruments in his Sound Post series.

After a successful Series 1 in 2020, The Violin Channel is pleased to present Series 2 of Sound Post! Episode 2 features cellist Johannes Moser and his 330-year-old Andrea Guarneri cello.



A student of cellist David Geringas, Johannes is a former first prize winner at the Tchaikovsky International Cello Competition, at which he also won the Special Prize for his interpretation of the Rococo Variations.

He performs and records regularly with many of the world’s foremost orchestras and conductors. He has soloed with the Berliner Philharmoniker, New York Philharmonic, Los Angeles Philharmonic, and Chicago Symphony, among many other ensembles.

Moser is committed to expanding the reach of classical music through commissioning and teaching. He has commissioned works by prominent contemporary composers including Julia Wolfe and Andrew Norman.
