Dave Loew was born in Kenya close by the wilds of the Serengeti Plains. His parents were Hungarian and English, his grandparents Hungarian Jews, survivors of the Holocaust.
He began playing the cello at six years of age, and early lessons with the visiting international virtuoso cellist Raya Garbousova greatly inspired the young boy to ‘live the dream’ and become a fine cellist himself. Dave Loew`s career has taken him on numerous musical journeys around the globe and on to London, where he joined the illustrious London Symphony Orchestra under André Previn and other ensembles, as well as playing for countless stars in the entertainment world.
An early breakthrough into the cream of London`s elite commercial recording session camps saw him playing for such iconic artists as Julie Andrews, Barbra Streisand, Michael Crawford, Sarah Brightman and Elaine Page, film composers John Williams, Henry Mancini and Jerry Goldsmith, as well as such pop legends as Mike Oldfield, Cliff Richard, Leo Sayer, Sting and David Essex, and the great divas Luciano Pavarotti, Joan Sutherland and Montserrat Caballe. He has been privileged to play for such icons as the conductors André Previn, Claudio Abbado, Karl Bohm and Mstislav Rostropovich and impresarios Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber.
