U.S. debut with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra

It’s been like a long time coming—at least, it feels that way to me! I’m finally making my U.S. debut. I’ll be playing Shostakovich’s Cello Concerto No. 1 with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra under Daniele Rustioni. On my day off, I’ll go on a run to fend off the jet lag, and undertake on my obligatory search for the best coffeeshop in town.


About Julian Steckel

“As an interpreter, I’ve started trusting my inner life more and letting the audience in. It’s a kind of vulnerability that makes you stronger.”

Written music is potential energy that a performer must unleash. Audiences can tell if a musician really feels that energy, or if their expression is second-hand. When Julian plays, he is sharing something fragile and alive.
