Since he first started playing as soloist at the age of 16, his great sensitivity and connection with the audience through the emotion and honesty with which he approaches the music have made David Barona an exceptional cellist, one of the most outstanding of his generation. A versatile musician, he excels as a soloist with orchestra, in chamber music and as a recitalist with a repertoire ranging from Baroque to contemporary.

He has offered concerts in Spain, France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Netherlands, Austria, Bulgaria, Belgium, Portugal and Latin America in renowned halls such as Musikverein in Vienna, Auditorio Nacional de España, Auditorio de Zaragoza, Auditorio de Castellón, Palau de la Música de Valencia, Teatro Monumental de Madrid, Sala Ma Cristina in Málaga, Gran Teatro del Liceo and Auditorio de Galicia, amongst others.Conductors of the standing of Juan Luís Martínez, Sergio Alapont, Miquel Rodrigo, Rolando Prusak, Arturo Tamayo or Constantino Martínez have had David as a soloist in orchestras like Orchestra of Valencia, Camerata Aragón, Symphonic Orchestra of Albacete, the Young Orchestra of de Castellón and Band of the Music Conservatory of Aragón among others.

He has made records as a soloist for some record companies like World Wind Music, Solfa-Recordings, Onda Cero and Irischart. He has also played along with many music leading figures: Wenzel Fuchs, Maurice André, Christian Limberg, Franco Petracchi, Terwilliger, Stefano Canuti, Jean-Yves Thibaudet, Lucas Macías, Jaime Martín, Sir Neville Marriner, Carlos Kalmar, Nacho de Paz, Thomas Dausgaard, Walter Weller or Jan Eric Gustafsson and he has been part of orchestras like Radio Televisión Española’s Orchestra, Orchestra of Extremadura, Orchestra of Cadaqués, Liceu Opera, Orchestra of Valencia, Symphonic Orchestra of Castellón and Orchestra of Granada.

The excellence of its training has been supported by prestigious scholarships, such as the Postgraduate Scholarship of the Valenciá Institute of Music or the scholarship of high specialization of lbercaja granted by the Government of Aragon. His variety of styles has allowed him to go on tours and give concerts with artists the likes of Ara Malikian, Lamari from Chambao, Emilio Aragón, Los Secretos, Rafael Amargo or Iñaki from Extremoduro, performing on several important national and international festivals.


A different approach is attributed to David Barona, characterizing every piece he performs and configurating his own style which gives a unique and unforgettable experience in each one of his concerts.
