Ernst Simon Glaser is principle cellist of the Gothenburg Smphony Orchestra of Sweden. He has previously held similar posts in the Norwegian Opera Orchestra and the Trondheim Symphony Orchestra.

Ernst Simon enjoys chamber music and solo work too and has released two recordings to date. One of the complete works for cello and fortepiano by Schubert and Schumann, the other a selection of cello concertos with winds.

Ernst Simon is based in Oslo with his wife and two children. He enjoys teaching, reading and feels very fortunate to have a rather nice Francesco Ruggeri cello ca.1680 on loan thanks to the Dextra Musica fund of Norway.
