Winner of the Muriel Taylor Cello Prize and the Making Music Award for Young Concert Artists, Adi Tal is emerging as one of the most dynamic young cellists of her generation.

Born in Israel, Adi made her solo debut at age twelve with the Israel Chamber Orchestra, and has since appeared as a soloist with numerous ensembles, including Kwazulu-Natal Philharmonic Orchestra, the Israel Philharmonic, and the Jerusalem and Haifa Symphonies, collaborating with conductors Daniel Boico, Thomas Sanderling, Aldo Ceccato, Dan Ettinger, and James Judd.

Her solo and chamber music performances have been broadcast on BBC Radio 3, Singaporean Radio, and Israeli Radio, and she has recorded for Naxos, Meridian, NMC, Orange Mountain Music, Divine Art Records and Resonus Classics.

She has collaborated with such artists as Steven Isserlis, Yuja Wang, Lahav Shani, Miriam Fried, Anthony Marwood, Nicholas Daniel, and members of the Cleveland and Jerusalem Quartets. Adi is a regular member of Daniel Barenboim’s West-Eastern Divan Orchestra and often performs with Camerata Tchaikovsky and Aurora Orchestra. She has performed at the Perlman Music Program, Ravinia Festival Steans Institute, Verbier Academy, and Banff Music Festival, and she is a regular participant at the Open Chamber Music at IMS Prussia Cove. 

In 2014, Adi joined the acclaimed Fidelio Trio, editor’s choice for Gramophone Magazine for November 2016 Issue and shortlisted for the 2016 Royal Philharmonic Society Ensemble Award. They present their own annual winter chamber music festival at St. Patrick’s College Drumcondra, Dublin City University.
