Gavriel Lipkind, born in Tel Aviv in 1977, enjoyed a stellar rise to fame as a young cellist, before making the decision to rethink a predefined life and halt a predictable path:

At the pinnacle of his youthful career, still in his early twenties, Lipkind took a three-year long period of retreat from stage life devoting himself to the founding of Lipkind Productions.

Since then every aspect of Lipkind’s activities as a musician, was an inseparable part of a larger plan to record the underlying repertoire. The productions shaped all other aspects of his career.

Lipkind has appeared in some of the world’s most prestigious venues in recitals and with preeminent orchestras, the long list includes the Concertgebouw, Suntory Hall, Kennedy Center and Berlin Philharmonie, and orchestras such as the Israel Philharmonic, the Munich Philharmonic and the Baltimore Symphony.
Early on, he has already worked alongside outstanding musicians such as Zubin Mehta, Philippe Entremont, Giuseppe Sinopoli, Yehudi Menuhin, Pinchas Zukerman, Mstislav Rostropovich, Yuri Bashmet and Gidon Kremer.
As a passionate advocate of supporting and encouraging young talent, Gavriel Lipkind enjoys giving masterclasses around the world as well as performing lecture recitals. His deep knowledge of different instrumental grammars, together with the ability to see into and feel another performer attract hundreds of students from all over the world each year.

For over 15 years, Gavriel Lipkind has dedicated his efforts to an award winning collaboration with pianist Roman Zaslavsky – two lifelong friends performing onstage as one unit.

Gavriel Lipkind plays a unique Italian cello labeled "Aloysius Michael Garani (Bologna, 1702)" estimated, however, to have been completed in the years 1670-1680; An enigma which has come to be known as the Zihrhonheimer cello.

Bernard Greenhouse
“Gavriel Lipkind proves that he is certainly the finest cellist playing today.”
The Independent
“... Lipkind is a total one-off ... he plays as if possessed. This was edge-of-the seat, white knuckle playing ...”(five stars review)
The Strad
“... a significant percentage of listeners left the hall in tears.”
