Michael Unterman — Cello
Michael Unterman is a Boston-based cellist, born and raised in Vancouver, BC, Canada. He is currently a member of the chamber orchestra A Far Cry and also performs frequently with the Callithumpian Consort, Discovery Ensemble, and the Harvard Baroque Chamber Orchestra. He received his Bachelor’s (’08) and Master’s (’11) degrees from the New England Conservatory as a student of Laurence Lesser and Natasha Brofsky. In 2008-2009, he was the recipient of a Fulbright Scholarship to Barcelona, Spain where he studied with Lluis Claret, the Quartetto Casals, and composer Joan Guinjoan.
Lately, Michael has been increasingly drawn to both early and new music performance. On the early music side, he is a member of the newly founded group Gut Reaction and has studied with early musicians Phoebe Carrai, Robert Mealy, Manfredo Kremer and Paul Leenhouts. On the new music side, largely through his work with Steve Drury and the Callithumpian Consort, Michael has had the opportunity to work with many contemporary composers including Jonathan Harvey, Lee Hyla, Tristan Murail, Steve Reich, Frederick Rzewski and Christian Wolff.
