Frédéric Rosselet

Since his move to the Bay Area, Swiss-American cellist Frédéric Rosselet has been seen performing with local ensembles such as American Bach Soloists, Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, Ensemble San Francisco and Live Oak Baroque Orchestra. Equally dedicated to chamber and orchestral music, he has been a recurring participant of the Verbier Festival Orchestra and the Yellow Barn Music Festival, as well as a faculty member at the Yellow Barn Young Artists Program. Having a keen interest in early and new music, he enjoys exploring new repertoire for the cello and discovering old works on baroque cello and viola da gamba.

After studying at both the Basel Music Academy and the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis, Frédéric obtained his DMA from the University of Southern California. He has mainly benefited from the teachings of cellists Ralph Kirshbaum, Rafael Rosenfeld and David Geringas.
