Baltimore Symphony Orchestra’s Principal Cellist Dariusz Skoraczewski has been described by the Baltimore Sun as having “lush tone, expressive style and solid technique that have earned him admiration in a career that encompasses solo, chamber and orchestral music-making…” His debut CD “Cello Populus”, a collection of contemporary solo pieces, earned considerable attention to award Dariusz the prestigious Baker Artist Award in Baltimore in 2013. His recording project – Bach’s Cello Suites – has been praised by the Fanfare Magazine: Skoraczewski’s Suites “present the best recorded sound of a cello I ever have heard”. Dariusz plays a 1702 cello made by Carlo Giuseppe Testore.
