Baltimore Symphony Orchestra’s Principal Cellist Dariusz Skoraczewski has been described by Tim Smith of the Baltimore Sun as having “lush tone, expressive style and solid technique that have earned him admiration in a career that encompasses solo, chamber and orchestral music-making…”

His diverse repertoire includes compositions from early Baroque to the present. His debut CD “Cello Populus” is an eclectic collection of contemporary solo pieces and includes works of Hindemith, Ligeti, Crumb, Penderecki, Saariaho and Lutos?awski. Praised by Mike D. Brownell of AllMusic.com as “a truly exceptional album that leaves listeners eagerly waiting for another installment”, the recording earned considerable attention to award Dariusz the prestigious Baker Artist Award in Baltimore in 2013.

Dariusz’s second recording with pianist Michael Sheppard, “Cello Phantasia”, features music by Schumann, Franck and Rachmaninov. Joined by violinist Igor Yuzefovich to create Monument Piano Trio, the talented Peabody alumni group has a recording of pieces by Brahms, Shostakovich and Schoenfield. This trio recording as well as Dariusz’s subsequent recordings, were recorded, edited and produced by Dariusz.

Dariusz began his musical education at the age of six in Warsaw, Poland studying with Zbigniew Liebig and Andrzej Zieli?ski. As a scholarship recipient at the Peabody Conservatory of Music in Baltimore he studied with world-renowned cellist Stephen Kates.

Since 2011 he has held the Joseph and Rebecca Meyerhoff chair as the Principal Cellist of the Baltimore Symphony. Dariusz plays a 1702 Carlo Giuseppe Testore cello, generously on loan from Marin Alsop in memory of her mother, Ruth Alsop.


Known as “a virtuosic soloist possessed of power, sensitivity, earthiness, and humor” (Whitney Smith, Indianapolis Star) with the “power to make an audience sit up and pay attention...thought- provoking for performers and listeners alike” (James Manheim, All Music Guide ) , Michael Sheppard trained with the legendary Leon Fleisher at the Peabody Conservatory. He was selected by the American Pianists Association as a Classical Fellow, which designation led to the recording of his Harmonia Mundi CD of 2007. In 2015, another recording will be released by Azica, a Cleveland-based label distributed worldwide by Naxos Records.  Sheppard is a native of Philadelphia and resides in Baltimore, where he works at both the Peabody Conservatory and the Baltimore School for the Arts, sharing his love and understanding of music and the artistic process with future generation.
