He is a regular guest at the Aspen, Aldeburgh, Bath, Edinburgh, Mainly Mozart and La Jolla festivals, collaborating with Kahane, Hadelich, Steinhardt, Harrell and Thibaudet.

LA Times declares that his playing is “always eloquent and passionate,” The Times praises him for “fastidious poetry of phrase and technique,” and the Salt Lake Tribune writes, “[Shulman] gave a fabulously nuanced and impassioned performance.”

As conductor, Andrew has performed in the UK, Europe and Scandinavia. LA Opening Nights described his US conducting debut as “a stunning performance” with the LA Chamber Orchestra. He has also conducted successful productions of Mozart’s Figaro and Cosi at the Theater Royal.

Solo and chamber recordings span 35 CDs, including the Britten Quartet’s complete discography, Vivaldi concertos for Virgin and Janacek for EMI, where he was an exclusive artist.

Andrew studied with Dickson, Pleeth and du Pré. He was principal of the Philharmonia, the ASMF and the LA Phil, and is one of the most sought-after cellists in TV and movies, with thousands of credits. Last season he premiered a concerto by Broughton and a new work by Zigman, and appeared at the La Jolla ‘Summerfest’, the Green Chamber Festival in Sonoma and the Piatigorsky Festival in LA.
