STEUART PINCOMBE
cello
     
Steuart Pincombe is currently pursuing a B.M. in modern cello and a M.M. in viola da gamba and baroque cello at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music where he studies with Darrett Adkins and Catharina Meints. Prior to his studies at Oberlin, Steuart was a member of the Springfield (MO) Symphony and electric cellist of the Humours (an experimental music ensemble). As soloist, Steuart has performed with five different orchestras including the Oberlin Contemporary Music Ensemble with which he performed Alfred Schnittke's Dialog for Solo Cello and Seven Instruments in 2007.
He has also collaborated in chamber concerts with several renowned artists including violinist Mark Peskanov, pianist Jeffrey Biegel, organist Matti Pesonen, guitarist Dusan Bogdanovich, and oboist Alex Klein. He has appeared in solo and chamber music performances in such venues as Sheldon Concert Hall in St. Louis, BargeMusic, Riverside Cathedral, the Kennedy Center, Avery Fischer Hall, and Festwhoche Attersee in Seewalchen, Austria. Steuart studied modern cello with Jean-Guihen Queyras in Freiburg, Germany for the summer of 2008 and appeared in chamber and orchestral concerts in Poland, Germany, and Austria. In the winter of 2008, Steuart was a recipient of the Conservatory Initiative Grant Supporting Imagination and Excellence from the Oberlin Conservatory for his project of recording the complete cello suites by Bach and performing them in different venues across the U.S.

A proponent of new music, Steuart has premiered compositions by both student and faculty composers in Oberlin and has recorded new music for the Oberlin Conservatory's Aural Capacity series and the Centaur label. Steuart's most recent performance project, SILENCE/noise: an unconventional approach, was made possible through a Creativity Fund Award from the Oberlin Conservatory of Music. In addition to his solo projects, Steuart is currently cellist of the Credo Trio which in addition to touring the States, will be on faculty at the Credo Chamber Music Festival this summer.
