Enrien Lamcellari

Hailing from Albania, Enrien began learning cello at the age of four and went on to receive an honours degree in music, majoring in Cello Performance, from the University of Arts in Tirana, Albania.  He went on to do postgraduate study, focusing on chamber music, at the renowned Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in Rome, one of the oldest music institutions in the world (founded in 1585), and he has studied and participated in masterclasses in several other European countries. 
Enrien has been both performing and teaching cello in Ireland for over two decades.  His performance highlights include Antonín Dvořák’s great Cello Concerto in B minor with the National Symphony Orchestra; Max Bruch’s Kol Nidrei for cello and orchestra with the National Symphony Orchestra; and with his son, Jayden Lamcellari, George Frideric Handel’s Sonata for Two Cellos and Piano in G minor in Carnegie Hall, New York. 
He is also a regular guest cellist with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra.

In addition, Enrien has played bass for most of his life and performed with a wide range of rock and metal bands in Albania, Greece and Ireland – as well as coaching rock bands.
