+ click to enlarge

Sebastian Baverstam, cellist, will be featured at the “Concerts at the Gallery” series on Sunday Nov. 17. The program begins at 5 p.m. in the Art Trail Gallery on the Corner of W. Evans and Irby in downtown Florence. 
Tickets are $10 at the door for the one hour program with a reception to follow. 
The program includes works by Bach, Baverstam, and Kodaly. 
Praised by The Strad for his “…powerfully expressive style,” cellist Sebastian Bäverstam is a winner of the 2009 Concert Artists Guild International Competition.  His recent performance at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall was noted in The Strad for its “consummate instrumental mastery,” with critic Dennis Rooney declaring “…the emergence of a mature artist.” This remarkable recital led to Mr. Bäverstam’s subsequent selection by Musical America as its “New Artist of the Month” for June 2011. Highlights of the 2013-14 season include concerto engagements with the South Bend Symphony (Dvorak concerto) and the Cape Cod Symphony (Saint-Saëns), and other recent concerto appearances include the Dupage (IL) and Mankato (MN) Symphony Orchestras (both Strauss Don Quixote) and the South Bay Symphony in Myrtle Beach, SC (Saint-Saëns Concerto No. 1).  
His cross-country recital tours encompass over twenty-five concerts in fifteen different states, including performances for the Pepperdine University Center for the Arts, Detroit Institute of Arts, the Chamber Music Society of Little Rock and last season’s opening recital for the Rising Stars series of the Ravinia Festival, where he also spent the summer of 2012 as a member of Ravinia’s renowned Steans Institute. 
Sebastian Bäverstam, age 24, has appeared multiple times on the nationally syndicated radio show From the Top, and he has also been heard on international radio broadcasts on Voice of America. On television, he was featured on the PBS version of From the Top, and he has participated in a PBS documentary filmed at Carnegie Hall, as well as a film by the Masterclass Media Foundation of Great Britain and a nationally televised commercial for Bose speakers. 
A winner of the Boston Symphony Orchestra’s Concerto Competition, Mr. Bäverstam performed the Shostakovich Concerto with the BSO at Symphony Hall. In 2007, he was called on to substitute for Lynn Harrell with the Cape Cod Symphony on only six hours notice. He delighted the audience playing Schumann’s Cello Concerto and was praised by the Cape Cod Times for his “insightful musicianship and poetic feeling.”
