A native of Tel Aviv, Israel, Daniel Hass is an aspiring cellist in classical music. He has received training at the Israel Conservatory, where he studied with Michael Bezem and Zvi Plesser, The Young Artist Performance Academy of the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto and the New England Conservatory in Boston under Paul Katz as a full scholarship recipient. In the spring of 2017 Daniel graduated from the Juilliard School under the tutelage of Joel Krosnick as a proud recipient of the Kovner Fellowship.

Over the years, Mr. Hass has played with a number of orchestras in Israel and Canada, including the Ashdod Chamber Orchestra, the Israel Camerata Orchestra, the Toronto Sinfonietta, Orchestra Toronto, and the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. He has won competitions in both Israel and Canada, and since 2005, has been awarded scholarships from the America-Israel Foundation with honors. Daniel participates in international masterclasses whenever he can, and has played for Gary Hoffman, Ralph Kirshbaum, Andres Diaz, Timothy Eddy, Janos Starker, Leon Fleisher, and others. Since the age of 13, Daniel spends his summers at the Perlman Music Program, where he studies with Ron Leonard and Paul Katz. Daniel plays on a 1914 Eugenio Degani Cello on loan through the course of his education.

This is Mr. Hass’ debut with the ESO.
