Biography

Sonia Wieder-Atherton is a French-American cellist.
She is a former pupil of Russian maestri Mstislav Rostropovitch and Natalia Shakhovskaia who has developed her own tone and style. Having studied in Paris and in Moscow, she combines both French and Russian styles of cello playing. At the Paris Conservatory, where she studied with Maurice Gendron, she was awarded first prizes for both cello and chamber music and is a prize-winner of the Rostropovitch International Cello Competition.

In addition to performing most of the great classical cello repertoire, Sonia Wieder-Atherton is also passionate about contemporary music and has premiered many works, often dedicated to her, including Betsy Jolas’ Episode Cinquieme, Ohana’s In Dark and Blue and Pascal Dusapin’s Incisa and his cello concerto Celo.
She has worked with many great orchestras including the Orchestre de Paris, Orchestre National de France, Orchestre National de Belgique, Liège Philharmonique, the UNAM Mexico, Orchestre National d’Ile de France and performs regularly at many international music festivals such as Flanders, Shangai, Jerusalem, Strasbourg, Kuhmo, Monte Carlo, Aix-en-Provence, Sintra, Ars Musica, IRCAM, and Bath.
