Daniel Harp, cellist, has taught cello and chamber music in the Brown University Music Department since 1986. He has studied privately and in classes with some of the great concert cellists of our time, including Lynn Harrell, Zara Nelsova, Janos Starker, Bernard Greenhouse and Raya Garbousova. Chamber music studies were with the LaSalle String Quartet and Juilliard String Quartet and the Beaux Arts Trio. His professional career began with his concerto debut with the Charleston (S.C.) Symphony Orchestra where he played Bloch’s Schelomo and was called a “master of the cello” by the Charleston Evening Post. He has subsequently performed numerous concertos with orchestras and solo recitals throughout the United States, being reviewed for his “dramatic precision, excellent intonation and a breathless legato line” (The Cincinnati Inquirer) and “ rich sonorities and perfect dynamic control” (The Maryland Enterprise.)

  • Moving into fall (Oct 10, '14)
    It was chilly this morning. No frost yet (perish the thought — our average first frost date falls in early November) but night temperatures in the forties are definitely giving us a taste of what’s to come along with a chance to acclimatize, and a good reason to pull sweaters out of summer storage. And after […]
