I am happy and proud to introduce you to one of our most talented musicians, Paul Heyman, a 20-year-old cellist from Brussels.
He is currently studying with Raphael Wallfisch at the ZHdK in Switzerland. He also studies the Baroque cello with Roel Dieltiens.
Paul has taken part in masterclasses with such artists as Frans Helmerson, Arto Noras, Natalia Gutman, Gary Hoffman, Pieter Wispelwey, Gavriel Lipkind and Leonid Gorokhov.
He has performed in Belgium, France, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, and the Netherlands and his performances have taken him to such venues as The Royal opera “La Monnaie” and Flagey in Brussels, the Flemish Opera hall in Gent, The Royal Palace “Het Loo” in the Netherlands, the Miry-hall in Gent, and the Brussels Summer Festival, to name a few.
Several of the pieces which Paul has recorded have been broadcast on national television in Belgium.
At an early age Paul studied with the great Belorussian pedagogue Vladimir Perlin, whose fundamental method and ideology on how to approach music formed the basics of Paul's cello playing.
Before moving to Switzerland Paul was studying with Olsi Leka in Brussels.
Paul plays a cello which was made for Julius Klengel in 1893 by W.H. Hammig in Leipzig, Germany, kindly loaned to him by Mr. Charles Rose from London.
