Cellist of the Month: Stephen Erdody

Have you ever heard a beautiful cello solo at an important emotional moment during one of your favorite Hollywood movies?  There’s a good chance you’re listening to Stephen Erdody, one of the top studio musicians in Hollywood.  You can hear Steve in blockbuster movies including “August Rush” where he plays the Elgar Concerto, and others including “Angela’s Ashes”, “Munich”, and “Memoirs of  a Geisha”.

Steve studied at Juilliard where his teacher was Harvey Shapiro, an inspiring teacher who trained many of the nation’s principal cellists, chamber players, and university professors.  You can also listen to Steve on his Grammy Award winning recording of the complete Haydn string quartets with the Angeles String Quartet.  Stephen Erdody, a successful cellist that every young cellist should get to know!
