Matylda Adamus

Cello, Intrada

Cellist Matylda Adamus was born in Wroclaw, Poland, and is currently based in the Netherlands. Matylda specialises in historically informed performance, and she regularly performs with ensembles such as Le Concert des Nations, Arte dei Suonatori and Orchestra des Champs-Élysées.  

Matylda has had many experiences as a soloist, a particular highlight being performing Beethoven’s Triple Concerto with the Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century in 2022. She also has a keen interest in chamber music in all its forms – In 2023 Matylda performed early 19th century repertoire for the Early Music Day of the Festival Misteria Paschalia, alongside her good friend and esteemed harpsichord/fortepianist, Maciej Skrzeczkowski. She also participated in the Utrecht Oude Muziek Festival in 2022 and 2023, presenting duos by Franz Xavier Mozart and Jean-Luis Duport for cello with fortepiano, and cello with romantic guitar. 

Matylda studied modern cello with Roberto Trainini at the Conservatorium Monteverdi Bolzano. Here she developed an interest in historically informed performance practice by experimenting with gut strings, which would lead her to study Baroque cello with Catherine Jones at the Conservatorio Felice Dall’ Abaco in Verona. Matylda fully immersed herself in studies of historically informed performance when she pursued a master’s degree in early music, studying in the class of Lucia Swarts at Conservatorium Den Haag.

Matylda has appeared with the Theresia Orchestra, Academia Montis Regalis, Jeune Orchestre de l’Abbaye, OAE Experience Scheme, Il Giardino Armonico under the direction of Giovanni Antonini, Enrico Onofri, Jordi Savall, Ton Koopman, Amandine Beyer, and Christophe Coin, amongst others.
