Michael Unterman

Cello, Baroque Cello

Michael Unterman enjoys a busy performing career on both modern and baroque cellos, primarily as a member of the self-directed string chamber orchestra A Far Cry and as principal cellist of Boston Baroque, earning Grammy nominations with both groups in 2019. As a cellist who thrives in all types of musical roles, Michael has received critical praise for his “soulful and sultry solos,” “nuanced, sensitive, and wholly gorgeous collaboration” (Classical Scene), and “heroic continuo” accompaniment (Parterre Box). His programs for A Far Cry have been singled out as “just the kind of imaginative artistic agenda that more groups should be prodded to try” (Boston Globe) and “the way good programing should proceed” (Arts Fuse). In addition to degrees from New England Conservatory and Juilliard, Michael was a Fulbright Scholar to Barcelona in 2008, where he studied with Lluis Claret and the Quartetto Casals.
