About Christian-Pierre

In a few years, through his international concert appearances and his award-winning Sony Classical recordings, the ‘young cellist in ascension’ (Diapason) Christian-Pierre La Marca is described as ‘a young man who already ranks among the masters of the cello’ (La Croix).

Christian-Pierre began playing the cello in Aix-en-Provence before studying in Paris with Jean-Marie Gamard and Philippe Muller. He continued his education with Frans Helmerson in Cologne, Steven Isserlis in London and alongside attended masterclasses by Mstislav Rostropovich, Heinrich Schiff, Anner Bylsma or Gary Hoffman.
