Brian Ellingsen

Brian Ellingsen is a New York City based double bassist, chamber musician, and soloist. Specializing in contemporary music, the New York Times has described his interpretations as, “coaxing an amazing variety of sounds from his instrument.” As a soloist, Brian has been featured at the Perth International Festival, Adelaide International Festival, New Zealand International Festival, and the Spoleto Festival USA. As a chamber musician, he is a standing member of Decoda, and has performed with Ensemble Intercontemporain, International Contemporary Ensemble, Lucerne Festival Alumni Ensemble, Ensemble ACJW, and Gotham Camber Opera. Brian has also toured the world and received much critical acclaim for his role in An Iliad, a play based on Homer’s The Iliad. The play features an epic score for solo double bass and electronics, which Brian premiered in 2010 and continues to tour with to this day. Brian holds a bachelor’s degree from The Hartt School, and a master’s degree from Yale School of Music.
