Norman Fischer

In addition to being one of the finest cellists of our time, Norman

Fischer has been a guiding light in the worlds of chamber music and

cello pedagogy. Throughout his career, he has given selflessly of his

time and boundless energy to nurture young talent, to mentor the best

young performers and chamber music groups, and to commission

and perform new music.

He first appeared on the international stage as a member of the

Concord String Quartet, known for its performances of the standard

repertory and premieres of works by George Rochberg, Ben

Johnston, and Robert Sirota among others. With his wife, Jeanne

Kierman, he formed the Fischer duo, commissioning and recording

works for cello and piano by Rochberg, William Bolcom, John

Harbison, Samuel Jones, Augusta Read Thomas, and Pierre Jalbert.

As a teacher, Norman has served on the faculties of Rice University,

Oberlin Conservatory, and Dartmouth College and at the Tanglewood

Music Center and Musicorda Festival.

“An extraordinary person and musician, Norman is one of the great

souls inhabiting the music profession.” – Robert Sirota
