Cello recital from our fantastic Young Artist – Finn Mannion Irish-Scottish cellist, Finn Mannion (20), is currently studying for his bachelor’s degree at the Musik-Akademie in Basel, Switzerland. Born to Irish parents, Finn grew up in the Highland Perthshire countryside. At the age of ten, Finn was awarded a government-funded place at Scotland’s National Music School in Edinburgh, where he studied in the city for seven years with Ruth Beauchamp. Afterwards, Finn spent a year in Glasgow under the tutelage of Prof. David Watkin and Alison Wells. Finn became the youngest ever winner of the Royal Philharmonic Society’s prestigious ‘Julius Isserlis’ scholarship at age seventeen. The following year (2020), he won the Beatrice Huntington Award for Cellists. Finn’s infectious enthusiasm for chamber music has led to his already having performed chamber music with many leading musicians from Britain and abroad and he has been principal cello with all three of Scotland’s Youth Orchestras. Finn will be presenting a mixture of solo pieces and pieces with piano, for which he will be joined by Sophia Rahman.   They will be playing wonderful music by composers from Bach, Cassadó, Schumann,and Debussy.
