Biography


The son of a professional violinist, Marc Moskovitz's musical path has taken him from NC to Indiana, Berlin, Germany, Virginia, Ohio, Boston and finally back to NC.  As a student of Janos Starker, Marc was the third cellist at Indiana University to obtain a doctoral degree.  Following a Fulbright year in Germany, he went on to hold positions at The University of Virginia and The University of Toledo, where he served as associate professor of cello and cellist of the Toledo Trio. 

In 2001 Marc moved to Boston, where he performed with some of the city's most venerable music organizations, among them The Boston Pops and The Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra, The Handel and Haydn Society and the Lydian String Quartet.  While in Boston Marc co-founded the MONTAGE Music Society and in October of 2006 he gave the North American premiere of Zemlinsky’s rediscovered Cello Sonata at the Library of Congress.  He has recorded music of cello virtuosi Alfredo Piatti and David Popper for VAI and of Jewish refugee composers for the ASV Quicksilva label. 

He currently lives with his family in North Carolina and serves as principal cellist of the ProMusica Columbus Chamber Orchestra.

Marc's articles have appeared in leading music journals and The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians. His biography of composer-conductor Alexander Zemlinsky is published by Boydell & Brewer and his study of Beethoven's cello sonatas, Beethoven's Cello, is due out this fall.
