Biography

As a graduate of the Eastman School of Music, Carter Enyeart has enjoyed a distinguished and varied career. His experience as a member of the Pittsburgh and San Francisco Symphony Orchestras, principal cellist of the Dallas Opera, member of the renowned Philadelphia String Quartet and American Piano Trio and his duties as associate artistic director and cellist of the Chamber Music Society of Fort Worth give him strong credentials in the symphonic and chamber music fields. His teaching at Ball State University, Northwestern University, and the University of North Texas preceded his current appointment as Rose Ann Carr Millsap/Missouri Distinguished Professor of Cello at the UMKC Conservatory of Music and Dance, where he also coordinates the String Chamber Music Program. His concert appearances as soloist and chamber musician have been acclaimed in the United States and in the music capitols of Europe, Asia, and South America. His first CD on Centaur (#2300) was hailed by John von Rhein in the Chicago Tribune as “one of the year’s best contemporary chamber music albums.” Walter Simmons of FANFARE commented, ”an extraordinary performance...a reading of unerring precision and blistering intensity (Muczynski Cello Sonata).” A second CD of Muczynski’s chamber music (Centaur #2634) was released in 2003 and features the first recording of Gallery: Suite for Solo Cello. He composed cello accompaniments for the Popper High School etudes, which are published by International Music Company of New York City (IMC #3631), and he was engaged as the editor for more new editions of cello etudes and technical studies, to be published soon by IMC. A new CD was released on Naxos in July 2015 featuring Enyeart performing Chen Yi’s Suite for Cello and Chamber Winds.
