We are coming to you LIVE from the showroom of Rare Violins of New York in Manhattan for a special masterclass with acclaimed international cello pedagogue Laurence Lesser.

The event is hosted by the Violoncello Society of New York as part of their inaugural Fred Zlotkin Memorial Master Class Series.

Cellist Laurence Lesser is a former top prize winner at the 1966 Tchaikovsky International Cello Competition and a participant in the historic Heifetz-Piatigorsky concerts and recordings. After studying with Gaspar Cassado and Gregor Piatigorsky, he performed as a soloist with the world's top orchestras. As a teacher, he served as a Professor of Cello at Baltimore's Peabody Institute and in 1974, became head of New England Conservatory's cello department. In 1983, he was named the school’s President, a position from which he retired in 1996 to return to performing and teaching. He has also taught at the summer programs of the Banff Centre, Orford Music, and Verbier.
