A cellist “with a rich imagination and a keen mind” (Diapason Magazine), Canadian Cameron Crozman leads an active performing career as a soloist and chamber musician in Canada, the USA, and Europe. He has appeared as a soloist with the Paris Ile-de-France, Montreal, and Vancouver Island Symphonies among others, and engagements have taken him everywhere from the Shanghai Oriental Arts Centre to the Philharmonie de Paris. An avid collaborator and chamber musician, Cameron shares the stage with eminent artists such as James Ehnes, Augustin Hadelich, Louis Lortie, Gérard Caussé, and James Campbell. He has released critically acclaimed recordings for the ATMA Classique and Printemps des Arts de Monaco labels and his performances are broadcast on CBC, BBC, Radio France, and Medici.tv.
Winner of the 2021 Canada Council for the Arts Virginia Parker Prize, the Council’s largest award for emerging classical musicians, Cameron was CBC/Radio-Canada’s 2019 Classical Revelation artist and a laureate of Gautier Capuçon’s Classe d’Excellence at the Louis Vuitton Foundation in Paris. A student at the Paris Conservatoire, he received his “Prix de violoncelle” with highest honours studying in the class of Michel Strauss. Cameron is the co-founder of ClassicalValley, a festival bringing together wine and chamber music in Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, Canada, and the artistic director of the Edeta Arts International Chamber Music Festival in Llíria, Spain, designated a Creative City of Music by the UNESCO. He currently plays on a c. 1750 Gennaro Gagliano cello, generously on loan from the Canada Council for the Arts Instrument Bank.
