Reviews

"Maggie Parkins is an exceptionally talented cellist. We worked together on the occasion of a premiere of one of my compositions. Not only was I amazed by her precision, her sound and her passionate playing; she also excelled at maintaining fluid communication as we worked on polishing the performance during the weeks prior to the concert."

Federico Llach, Music Lecturer at University of California

“Maggie Parkins is an extraordinary cellist and musician who has both impeccable technique and deep emotional breadth. I knew about Maggie Parkins’ reputation in the new music scene for many years, but it wasn’t until I worked with her on my own music that I realized how brilliant and impassioned her musical voice truly is.”

Mathew Rosenblum, Composer, Co-Director Music on the Edge, Professor and Chair at the University of Pittsburgh

“I have had the great pleasure of composing for and working with Maggie Parkins for several years. As a member of the white-hot Eclipse String Quartet, the dazzling Mojave Piano Trio, and as a riveting soloist, she has premiered many of my pieces in brilliant and well received performances and recordings. Her impeccable technique, beautiful sound, deep musical instinct, and her warm and engaging personality make her a composer’s dream to work with.”

Tom Flaherty, John P. and Magdalena R. Dexter Professor of Music, Pomona College

If you're looking to record a live, world-class cello layer on your track, Maggie is the perfect option for you.


An uncommonly versatile musician, cellist Maggie Parkins is equally at home performing chamber music, orchestral music and the avant-garde, and has concertized throughout the Americas and Europe. In addition to being a member of the Eclipse Quartet, Maggie is also the cellist of the Los Angeles based Mojave Piano Trio, Brightwork newmusic, and The Smudges.


Maggie’s interest in music outside the classical tradition has led her to perform with the Jazz Passengers, the Anthony Braxton Tri Centric Ensemble, Beck, Caetano Veloso, Bjork, percussionist Alex Cline and Zeena Parkins' The Phantom Orchard Orchestra. As an orchestral performer, Maggie has performed under the batons of Seiji Ozawa, Leonard Bernstein, Simon Rattle, Oliver Knussen, and Andre Previn.


An active recording artist as well, Maggie has recorded extensively with harpist Zeena Parkins and with accordionist Guy Klusevsek and Eclipse and can be heard on the Tzadik, Avan, New World, Bridge and Victo labels.


She has performed around the world at prestigious venues including the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival, the Banff Centre, Festival Internacional de Musica de Cadaques (Spain), Heidelberg Castle Festival, Spoleto (USA and Italy), the Taktlos Festival (Switzerland), the Scarlatti Festival in Naples, Tanglewood Festival, the Bach Aria Festival in New York and the Wels Festival Unlimited.


Maggie attended the Eastman School of Music and has a doctorate from SUNY at Stony Brook. She taught cello and chamber music at the University of California, Irvine for 19 years and currently teaches cello at Pomona College.
