Haimovitz has been honored with the Avery Fisher Career Grant (1986), the Grand Prix du Disque (1991), the Diapason d'Or (1991), and he is the first cellist ever to receive the prestigious Premio Internazionale "Accademia Musicale Chigiana" (1999).
Haimovitz's recording career encompasses more than 20 years of award-winning work on Deutche Grammophon and his own Oxingale Records, the trailblazing independent label he founded with composer/producer Luna Pearl Woolf.
In 2000, he made waves with his Bach "Listening-Room" Tour, for which, to great acclaim, Haimovitz took Bach's beloved cello suites out of the concert hall and into clubs across the U.S., Canada, and the U.K.
An expressive maximalist, Haimovitz calls forth a dazzling spectrum of sounds from the depths of his instrument.

This is, hands down, the most unusual solo cello program I have ever heard. There are plenty of some beautifully played traditional...pushes the artistic envelope in such a daring and successful manner!
