Cello, Viola da gamba
Los Angeles-based baroque cellist and viola da gamba player Eva Lymenstull enjoys a diverse career that has taken her across North America and Europe as a soloist, chamber musician, continuo player and orchestral musician. She has performed recently as concerto soloist and principal cellist with the Lyra Baroque Orchestra (St. Paul), guest principal cellist of the Atlanta Baroque Orchestra, with Apollo’s Fire, and with Musica Angelica, and has also appeared with Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra, Voices of Music, Tesserae, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment (UK), and Holland Baroque Society. Eva has performed at the Carmel Bach Festival, the Utrecht, Boston, and Berkeley Fringe Festivals, and on the Gotham Early Music and Academy of Early Music series. As winner of the 2017 Voices of Music Bach Competition, Lymenstull recorded Bach’s D Minor cello suite for VoM’s online video archive.
With performance and research interests ranging from the early Renaissance to the twentieth century, Eva particularly enjoys playing Classical and Romantic chamber music on historical instruments. Recent recordings can be heard on the Brilliant Classics and Violet Ear labels. In addition to performing, Lymenstull teaches baroque cello and viola da gamba as a regular guest artist at the University of Michigan. She holds degrees from the Royal Conservatory of The Hague (Jaap ter Linden), Rice University (Desmond Hoebig) and University of Michigan (Richard Aaron), and a doctorate in historical performance practice from Case Western Reserve University.
Eva is the featured cello soloist in the 2023 Winter Musicale gala concert on January 29, 2023.
