Cellist Benjamin Swartz has concertized extensively in the United States and Europe with a particular emphasis on historically-informed performance, electroacoustic collaboration, and the exposure of neglected repertoire. Equally at home on cello, Baroque cello, and viola da gamba, he has gained increasing recognition for multi-instrumental virtuosity spanning the Ars Subtilior to the present day. Currently a resident of Boston, he performs as cellist with Sound Energy and teaches at South Shore Conservatory and the Community Music Center of Boston. Visit him at http://www.benswartz.net/.
