Janina Fialkowska

Cameron Crozman, a “mature artist with a profound musical imagination” (Toronto Concert Reviews), is one of Canada’s most outstanding young cellists. Winner of many awards, he performs across the continent and abroad as both soloist and ensemble artist.

A brilliant talent on a meteoric rise among the ranks of Canadian string performers, Cameron Crozman was one of six cellists from around the world chosen for Gautier Capuçon’s 2016-17 Classe d’Excellence at Louis Vuitton Foundation. He received 2e Cycle Supérieur Conférant le Grade de Master with highest honours from Conservatoire de Paris. He has performed with numerous orchestras in Canada, as well as in Europe with Orchestre des Lauréats du Conservatoire and London Sinfonia; he has played in prestigious venues as the Shanghai Oriental Arts Center, Berliner Philharmonie, Paris Philharmonie and Montreal’s Maison Symphonique. 

As chamber musician, Mr. Crozman performs with leading international artists, and takes part regularly at festivals, such as Helsinki Musica Nova in Finland, Beauvais Cello Festival in France, Birmingham Frontiers Festival, and Musique et Vin festival at Clos Vougeot in Burgundy. His performances have been heard on Radio France, Radio Classique, and CBC. In 2019, he released his debut CD, Cavatine (ATMA Classique). Dedicated to sharing Canadian music, he has given several European premieres of Canadian works.
