Referred to as "…A star" (New York Times), "Tomorrow's man" and even "…Rider of the holy grail" (Politiken), the Danish cellist Toke Møldrup has performed in major halls across 4 continents during the past two decades. Reflected in his always experimenting approach to the classical music stage his concerts and social media presences serves existing audiences while opening up to new followers. With an equal focus on the classical and contemporary cello he has recorded the suites by J.S. Bach as well as the music for cello by Geoffrey Gordon to critical acclaim. Due to his busy solo concert schedule and position as a professor at the Royal Danish Academy of Music as well as being artistic director of Svanekegaarden International Cello Masterclass, Møldrup has recently resigned from his principal cellist chair of the Copenhagen Philharmonic Orchestra. Important influence on his artistic development derived from cellists Valter Despálj, Hans Jensen, Ralph Kirschbaum, Yo-Yo Ma, Harro Ruijsenaars and Morten Zeuthen as well as The Alban Berg Quartet with whom he studied as a part of the Paizo Quartet. His many national and international prizes and awards include Queen Ingrid’s Honorary Award as well as the Augustinus Fondens Anniversary Grant. He plays a David Tecchler cello (Rome, 1697) courtesy of the Augustinus Foundation.
