Adcock, Robert

Cellist who graduated from the Music Academy of the West in 1971 and has crafted a nifty little recording career for himself, both as a session musician with the likes of Michael Feinstein, Barry Manilow, and Donna Summer, and as a member of an ensemble on The Art of Fuguing, The Colors of the Baroque and The Trumpet in Baroque Chamber Settings.

On 9th November 1979, he appeared as part of the Los Angeles Cello Quartet in concert with the South Bay Chamber Music Society, Inc. Their program consisted of Johann Sebastian Bach’s “Sarabande from English Suite No. 3”, Franz Joseph Haydn’s “Adagio Cantabile”, Theodore Holland’s “Cortege”, Friedrich August Kummer’s “Duet in G minor for Two Cellos, Op. 22”, Carlo Menotti’s “Suite for Two Cellos and Piano”, David Popper’s “Requiem”, Wallingford Riegger’s “Introduction and Fugue”, and Antonio Vivaldi’s “Concerto Grosso No. 11 in D minor, Op. 3”.

He also appears with saxophonist Harvey Pittel on Crystal Records S105, playing Loeillet’s “Sonata No. 11, Op. 4”, Paule Maurice’s “Tableaux de Provence”, Robert Rodriguez’s “Sonata”, and Halsey Stevens’ “Dittico”.

Robert is often confused with Midnight Rhythm producer Robby Adcock, who frequently called Robert for session work.
