Internationally-renowned cellist Jamie Walton is our series’ artist-in-residence. He performs Bach’s 2nd Suite and Britten’s 3rd Suite (both for unaccompanied cello), Brahms’ Sonata for Piano and Cello in E minor, and Beethoven’s Sonata for Piano and Cello in G minor.
Jamie’s recent recording of the Britten attracted rave reviews:
“Jamie Walton’s absorbing performances of all three [Britten Suites] seem to expose and explore the emotional heart and soul that went into the writing of them.”
The Daily Telegraph, July 2013
“A musical triumph, captured in first-rate sound.”
Sinfini Music, July 2013
“None of this music holds terrors for Walton, with his big, bold tone and formidable technique.”
The Sunday Times, July 2013
