Cellist Adrian Brendel studied at Winchester College, Cambridge University and with Frans Helmerson at the Hochschule für Musik in Cologne, Germany. His close musical relationship with his father Alfred Brendel led to many chamber music appearances throughout the world and culminated in a critically acclaimed Philips recording of Beethoven’s complete music for cello and piano. Adrian Brendel’s piano trio with Till Fellner and Lisa Batiashvili is much in demand throughout Europe. Other recent collaborators include pianist Imogen Cooper, the Jerusalem String Quartet and fellow Honens juror, Aleksandar Madžar. Brendel founded Music at Plush in 1995 and has been festival Music Director throughout its development. He is also Classical Music Director of music label Plushmusic. He regularly offers masterclasses to chamber musicians and even solo pianists because of his vast knowledge of the chamber and solo piano literature. Brendel divides his time between Plush, London and Berlin.
