$25,000 honor for Julian Schwarz

Cellist Julian Schwarz has won first prize in the professional cello division of the Alice and Eleonore Schoenfeld International String Competition for Violin and Cello, held recently in Hong Kong. He was awarded $25,000 and a cello made by German luthier Helmut Illner.

Schwarz, in his final year at The Juilliard School, is the son of Seattle Symphony conductor laureate Gerard Schwarz and his wife, Jody.

His 2013/14 schedule will include appearances with the Modesto, Binghamton, and Wichita symphonies in the United States, and with the Queensland Symphony in Australia. He makes his television debut this fall performing Samuel Jones’ Cello Concerto with The All Star Orchestra, which will be broadcast by public television and released as a DVD on Naxos.
