Cellist Inbal Segev


Two breathtaking pieces: Israeli Inbal Segev mit Cello vor schwarzem Hintergrund Inbal Segev dances with her cello to Komponistin Anna Clyne mit schwarzem Hut Anna Clyne and Mei-Ann Chen lights a fire with Beethoven's Seventh.


“The apotheosis of dance”

“The apotheosis of dance” was what Wagner called the orgiastic finale of Beethoven’s 7th. Mei-Ann Chen unleashes all the orchestra’s potential and rejoices in it as she dances on the podium. Israeli cellist Inbal Segev does her part in the same spirit. She recorded Anna Clyne’s Cello Concerto “Dance” with the London Philharmonic. A “Gramophone” critic said: “I cannot remember the last time a piece of music was so beautiful it made me cry, but I was so moved by the finale of Anna Clyne’s Cello Concerto it brought tears to my eyes.”

Inbal Segev


At the age of 16, the Israeli native continued her cello studies in the US, where she earned degrees from Yale University and the Juilliard School. In addition to her collaborations with numerous renowned orchestras, she runs a popular YouTube master class series and is committed to revitalizing the cello repertoire.

Recreation - Das Orchester


Recreation is special in many ways: consisting of musicians whose nationalities range from Japan to Venezuela, most of the members received part of their training in Graz. After its formation in 2002, the collective played unique halls such as the Alte Oper Frankfurt and worked with outstanding conductors.

Mei-Ann Chen


Born in Taiwan, Mei-Ann Chen has lived in the US since 1989 and holds a doctorate in music (conducting) and a master’s degree in violin performance. One of America’s most promising young conductors, she was the first woman to win the Malko International Conductors Competition and has been appointed chief conductor of Recreation Graz beginning fall 2021.
