Well, unless I get more input I won't put this in the "must see" bin.
Here's a portion of his biography. Maybe some of will ring a bell:
Cellist Charles Curtis studied at the Juilliard School under Leonard Rose and Harvey Shapiro. Before receiving his Bachelors and Masters degrees in 1985, he spent two terms studying history at the London School of Economics and Political Science. Upon graduating from Juilliard, Curtis was appointed to the faculty of Princeton University, where for four years he taught cello and chamber music and advised graduate composition students on matters of string performance and technique.
From 1989 through 2000 Curtis was First Solo Cellist of the Symphony Orchestra of the North German Radio (NDR) in Hamburg. In this capacity and as a concert soloist he has soloed under distinguished conductors such as Herbert Blomstedt, André Previn, John Eliot Gardiner, Christoph Eschenbach, Günter Wand and Max Rudolf. He has been guest soloist with such orchestras as the San Francisco Symphony, Baltimore Symphony, National Symphony, Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, Symphony Orchestra of Berlin, Orquestra de la Maggio Musicale Florence, and the orchestras of Sao Paolo, Brazil and Santiago de Chile, among many others. His recording of the Shostakovich Cello Concerto No. 1 with the NDR Symphony Orchestra under Leopold Hager was released in 1998 on the German Klassik Klub label
