Frédéric Rosselet
Cello
Since moving to the United States, Swiss-American cellist Frédéric Rosselet has performed regularly with local ensembles such as American Bach Soloists, San Jose Chamber Orchestra, Cappella SF, Ensemble San Francisco, Live Oak Baroque (Sonoma) and Musica Angelica (Los Angeles), and has made appearances in several music festivals, notably Yellow Barn (Vermont), Verbier Festival (Switzerland), Interlaken Classics (Switzerland), Piatigorsky International Cello Festival (Los Angeles), Chamber Music Silicon Valley (San Jose), Music in May (Santa Cruz), Festival Cultural de Mayo (Guadalajara), as well as the Berkeley and Bloomington Early Music Festivals.

Equally at ease on modern and period instruments, he enjoys exploring new repertoire for the cello and discovering early works on baroque cello and viola da gamba. He is a founding member of the Costanoan Trio, which delves into music of the late 18th and early 19th centuries on original instruments.

Frédéric studied at the Conservatory of Lausanne (his hometown), the Hochschule für Musik in Basel and the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis, then obtained his Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the University of Southern California. He has mainly benefited from the teachings of cellists Ralph Kirshbaum, Rafael Rosenfeld, David Geringas and Bill Skeen. He currently lives in San Francisco and is on faculty at Santa Clara University.
