"… I also particularly liked the sound of the cellist Joe Zeitlin, who offered some deep burnished tones throughout the afternoon…" -David Mintz
Joe started the cello at the age of nine. He obtained music scholarships to Wells Cathedral School, The Purcell School and The Royal Academy of Music. Graduating from the Academy with a first class Hons Bmus in 2005 under David Strange, he was the recipient of the Reginald Thatcher Award for achievement. Joe then achieved a DipRAM (Distinction) qualification in his Post-graduate Diploma under Colin Carr, Felix Schmidt and David Strange, which was funded by both The Fishmonger's and Laura Ashley scholarship awards. During this time he won the May Muckle cello competition, reached the final of the RAM Club prize, and won the Moir Carnegie award for the best post-graduate final recital. He has since taken part in masterclasses with Steven Isserlis, Gary Hoffman and Steven Doane. More recently, with the Eeden Quartet, Joe studied intensively for 3 years with Prof. Hatto Beyerle, founding member of the Alban Berg Quartett.
Joe is currently a member of the Isolde Piano Trio as well as cellist of The Eeden Quartet, both with whom he performs regularly. Performances have included London's Wigmore Hall, King's Place, St Martin in the Fields, Holywell Music Rooms, The Paris Conservatoire, The Arnold Schoenberg Centre and ORF Radiokulturhaus in Vienna, and the National Concert Hall in Beijing. The Eeden Quartet now performs regularly across the U.K and Europe. In November 2015, they made their full recital debut at the Wigmore Hall, to critical acclaim.
Joe works regularly with both the Philharmonia orchestra and the Academy of St. Martin and the Fields, and also appeared recently as principle cellist in the Oscar-nominated score for 'Jackie' in 2017.
