Considered the most outstanding Spanish cellist of his generation, Asier Polo studied with E. Pascu, M. Kliegel and I. Moniguetti, and received advice from J. Starker, N. Gutman and M. Rostropovich. He has received distinctions such as tOjo Crítico by RNE (2002), the CEOE Foundation Award (2004), Bilbao Illustre (2009) and the Spanish National Music Award (2019).

Polo performs intensely as a soloist, along with orchestras such as the Israel Philharmonic, the Paris Orchestra, the Philharmonia Orchestra, the São Paulo Symphony Orchestra, the Berlin Symphony Orchestra, the RAI Orchestra of Turin or the BBC Philharmonic, among others.

He has 19 recordings, including Brahms Sonatas, Rachmaninov, Franck, Vivaldi Concerts, Boccerini, Haydn and Bach Suites. In addition, composers such as L. de Pablo, A. García Abril, J. Villarojo, G. Erkoreka and J. Torres have dedicated their works to him.

He is currently a teacher at the Conservatory of Lugano (Switzerland) and plays a cello Francesco Rugieri (Cremona, 1689) on loan from the Banco Santander Foundation.
