Armed with a diverse spectrum of repertoire and eclectic musical interests, Jay Campbell is the First Prize Winner of the 2012 CAG Victor Elmaleh Competition. He has been hailed by the press as an “astonishing cellist” (Seen and Heard International) and for his “electrifying” performances which “conveyed every nuance” (The New York Times). His adventurous inclinations have earned him awards from the BMI and ASCAP Foundations and led to collaborations with significant artists ranging from Elliott Carter and Pierre Boulez, to John Adams and David Lang, and to members of Radiohead and Einstürzende Neubauten.
