Renowned Cellist Lynn Harrell (1944-2020)

Dear Friends,

Guarneri Hall NFP is mourning the loss of the great cellist Lynn Harrell. Lynn was a towering presence among musicians of his time, and an artist and human being with a profoundly generous spirit.

Lynn was also a friend to us at Guarneri Hall, where he gave an insightful master class in 2019. His musical and pedagogical force can be seen on display in the archived live stream of that event and we encourage you to watch it here.

Lynn’s incredible command of the cello and his deep connection to the repertoire can be witnessed in his many recordings and performances on television. We have lost a great man, musician, and friend but he has left us so much and he will never be forgotten.


Stefan Hersh
Artistic Director
Guarneri Hall NFP
