Composer and acoustic/electric cellist Gideon Freudmann enjoys an international reputation for his innovative compositions and unique style of playing. He composes music for theater, film and dance, and also performs live soundtracks for classic silent films. His music is inspired by the best of classical, modern, jazz, and blues traditions, and is both immediately accessible and richly detailed in its nuance and complexity. Gideon has had his compositions featured on several NPR shows and has performed as a TEDtalk speaker. He recently released his 19th CD, a duo album for cello and mandolin.

The Boston Globe said of Gideon, “Taking a modern artist’s approach to the four-stringed instrument, Gideon Freudmann has brought the cello to a new realm.”
