Alban Gerhardt (1969-) is a German cellist. He has performed with many internationally known orchestras, including the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, Cleveland Orchestra, and the London Philharmonic Orchestra.
Gerhardt was born in 1969 in Berlin, where his father was a violinist in the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. He took up both the piano and the cello at the age of eight.
The Independent said of one of his performances 'Gerhardt is a slight man but his sound is big, his musical intelligence without question as he sensitively coaxed the music to sing.'
