Daniel Hamin Go, cello

Described as “authoritative, poised, and dripping with élan” (Jonathan Freeman-Atwood), 25 year-old South Korean cellist Daniel Hamin Go is making a name for himself as a special emerging talent. Daniel’s season includes performances at Krzyzowa Music (Poland) and Mendelssohn on Mull (UK), the recording of his debut album on Linn Records, and serving as artist-in-residence at the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel under the guidance of Gary Hoffman and Jeroen Reuling.

As a sincere and passionate chamber musician, Daniel has performed extensively throughout North America and Europe, collaborating with renowned musicians including Jonathan Biss, Glenn Dicterow, Miriam Fried, Ida Kavafian, Daniel Phillips, Rachel Podger, Wolfgang Redik, and Fazil Say, appearing in concert halls such as Cadogan, Carnegie, Hollywood Bowl, Berliner Philharmonie, and Konzerthaus Berlin.
Daniel finds inspiration working in masterclass settings with artists such as Steven Isserlis, Ferenc Rados, and Rita Wagner, with invitations to festivals such as Four Seasons Chamber Music Festival, IMS Prussia Cove, Music Academy of the West, Tsinandali Festival, and Yellow Barn.

Daniel received his Bachelor of Music at the Manhattan School of Music under the guidance of Julia Lichten and David Geber, Master of Music at the Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler in the class of Nicolas Altstaedt, and as a recipient of the Bicentenary Award and the Drake Calleja Trust Award, Daniel completed an Advanced Diploma at the Royal Academy of Music.
