Kristina Reiko Cooper



Cello virtuoso Kristina Reiko Cooper has won worldwide acclaim for her musical diversity, artistry, and charismatic stage presence, appearing as a soloist with the world’s leading orchestras.

A frequent performer of music of our time, she was recently named codirector of the New York–based group, Continuum. Composers such as Philip Glass, Mario Davidovsky, and Ryuichi Sakamoto have written works for her, and she toured worldwide with Tan Dun in his multimedia cello concerto, The Map.

She soloed in the 2022 premiere of Lera Auerbach’s Symphony No. 6—dedicated to Chiune Sugihara, savior of Jews during the Holocaust—and stars in the ensuing documentary, A Symphony for Sugihara.

Juilliard trained, Cooper is a visiting professor at the Buchmann-Mehta School at Tel Aviv University and vice chair of the America-Israel Cultural Foundation. She plays on the 1743 ex-Havermeyer G. B. Guadagnini cello.

Kristina plays on the 1743 Ex-Havermeyer G.B. Guadagnini cello and lives with her husband and three children in Tel Aviv, Israel.
