Israeli cellist Inbal Megiddo brings to her performances years of experience, the influences of master teachers, and praise from influential musicians. Maestro Zubin Mehta describes her as “an extremely talented, very musical musician.” At her recent New York debut at the Lincoln Center her playing was hailed by the press as having “magical expression and technical expertise”. She has “a warm, lustrous communicative way…the performance was sincerity personified!”
Ms. Megiddo has performed as soloist with several ensembles including the National Symphony of Ireland, the Prague Chamber Orchestra, and the Boston Classical Orchestra with Harry Ellis Dickson conducting. She has given many recitals in Europe, Asia, and America. Recent performances include a recital in Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., and chamber music in Carnegie Hall, her Berlin debut with the Berlin Symphony at the Philharmonie, performances and radio broadcasts with the Jerusalem Symphony under the direction of Sergio Comissiona, live recital broadcasts in several countries including Israel, Germany, Spain, Ireland, Chicago, and New York classical music radio and television stations. This includes solo recitals on the Dame Myra Hess Concert Series in Chicago (broadcast on WFMT radio and on the internet) and the Mishkenot Shaananim Music Center in Jerusalem (Kol Hamuzika station), and in Madrid, (broadcast on TV1). In June Ms. Megiddo performed a recital at the 2003 Israel Festival at the Targ Music Center.
