Starting with an intense music education at 9, Hassan proceeded to study the cello under the renowned Professor Ayman el Hanbouly, receiving several national and international awards throughout his studies. Since then, his performances have packed theatres for the Cairo Opera Orchestra and the Cairo Symphony Orchestra. Enthralled by his artistry, the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, Mediterranean Sea Youth Orchestra and Schleswig-Holstein Youth Orchestra have all invited him onto their stages.
Hassan has participated in many international music festivals, and has performed alongside the legendary Daniel Barenboim, at venues such as the Royal Albert Hall. He has also participated in many cello master classes with virtuosos such as Rostropovich, Yo-Yo Ma, Louis Claret, Mariko Canero and Lynn Harrell.
Highly sought after by composers, artists and pop stars, Hassan has made his mark on Arabic music and movies across all genres. Presently, he is the sub-principle cellist in the Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra.
