The best kept secret in music


"The Miami Herald"

"Krieger...delivered an extremely varied program with musical understanding and finesse...It was both funny and musically
- Jordan Levin

"The Cleveland Plain Dealer"

"...revealed the heart and soul of
the electronic cello.
- Wilma Salisbury

"The Hartford Advocate"

"Sometimes it rolls like thunder, then it buzzes like a swarm of hornets, other times it chimes like the rim of a glass... The playing is very emotional." - Janet Reynolds

Feeling a bit camera shy


Award-winning performer Jeffrey Krieger, chamber musician, solo recitalist and specialist in the performance of new music, plays the more conventional-looking cello as principal cellist of the Hartford Symphony Orchestra. He is among the new generation of solo recitalists who have incorporated technology - the computer and video as well as an electronic cello - into performance. Mr. Krieger was a recipient of a 1993 Solo Recitalist Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts which allowed extensive touring in the USA, and a 1996 State of Connecticut Commission on the Arts Artist Fellowship for work in multi-media.

Mr. Krieger performs in locations ranging from elementary and preparatory schools, to universities, music festivals, alternative performance spaces and museums, and has recorded for CRI, Vienna Modern Masters and O.O. Discs.
