Session music

I am in demand as a session musician and can be heard playing (sometimes several times at once!) in pop songs, films, TV programmes and computer games.

I have an ongoing collaboration with Bob and Barn who record for high-profile film and game clients as well as for independent film-makers. Work with them includes Microsoft's Zoo Tycoon, EE cinema 'gold spot' ads and the films The Guvnors (IMDB) and The Somnambulists (IMDB).

I have also recorded solo cello lines for acclaimed electro-acoustic composers including Ryan Teague and Matt Norman. I appear with the Mock Turtles on their Wicker Man EP.

I regularly give chamber concerts across the UK, either in cello-piano duos or in larger chamber groups. As well as playing in the standard concert venues, I am regularly engaged to present private recitals in people's homes. My repertoire includes all of the standard works for cello and piano as well as several lesser-known works by English romantic composers. I am a regular performer in the Fitzwilliam Museum Cambridge concert series. 

My chamber group, The Anglian Ensemble, is in demand for recitals and event appearances with its mixed repertoire 'from motets to Moby'.

The South African born composer David Earl dedicated his second cello sonata to me. I gave the world premiere in autumn 2012. There are ongoing plans to record this work. For further information, or to support this venture, please contact me.

The American composer Kate Waring (1953-2015) composed two chamber operas in 2013 for clarinet trio and voices. I performed in the premieres of both of these as well as well as in Kate's memorial concert in 2016 (review).

Shells and Strings is a short film about the Cellist of Sarajevo. I worked with the film-maker, Stephanie Trainer, to produce a trailer to raise funds for the project. You can see the trailer below with me playing Albinoni's Adagio.

Cambridge Contemporary Dance Company peform newly coreographed pieces in historic venues in Cambridge. I performed with them in their Sacred Moments presentation in Sidney Sussex College Chapel.
