Product Description

“How lucky we are to have music as beautiful as this.  These sonatas are quintessential examples of the human condition; romantic, tragic, hopeful, ultimately uplifting and as colorful as the imagination allows.”~ Ben Capps

Ben Calls enjoys a versatile performing career as a soloist & chamber musician. A native of NYC, Capps began playing the cello at age four.  At ten he was admitted to Juilliard Pre-College.  Capps holds degrees from the Manhattan School of Music, New England Conservatory and Juilliard.  His principal teacher was David Soyer; as well as Fred Sherry & Lawrence Lesser. Recent performance highlights include an unaccompanied recital tour in the Midwest & throughout Vermont, & recital tours in China, NYC, Greece and Spain.  Capps was featured on Vermont Public Radio playing the complete sonatas of Beethoven, Mendelssohn & Brahms, later performing all of them in four concerts.  His artistry has been praised as “most appealing” by the New York Times, “virtuosic and impassioned” by the Barre Montpelier Times, and the Holland Times hailed Capps as a “young cello phenomenon.”  Capps can be heard on Innova Records with two albums for solo cello, along with his LP Classics debut disc, “Ossia” featuring music of Bach, Schumann & Fitzenhagen.  Capps plays a William Forester cello build in 1782, in England.
