Rebecca Gilliver:

Rebecca Gilliver is principal cellist of the London Symphony Orchestra. Originally joining the LSO as co-principal in 2001, she won the principal job in 2009. Rebecca has also played as guest principal all over the world, including the Australian Chamber Orchestra, New Sinfonietta Amsterdam, and the World Orchestra for Peace.

James Halsey:

James Halsey studied cello at the Royal College of Music with Eileen Croxford. Whilst still a senior student in the early 1980s, James joined the Auriol String Quartet and was straightaway involved in more than 40 recitals each season. This love of chamber music stayed and developed through his career and he is now cellist of the Bingham String Quartet and the Tagore String Trio, and also played with the Dartington Piano Trio. With these ensembles he has played all over the world, broadcast frequently, and made numerous recordings.

Philip Higham:

Since 2016 he has been principal cellist of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, with whom has also performed frequently as soloist. His two solo recordings for Delphian Records, of Britten and Bach Suites, have received considerable praise, the Britten chosen as Instrumental Disc of the Month in Gramophone Magazine during 2013. He also premiered and recorded John Casken's Stolen Airs (2015) with pianist Alasdair Beatson, and has enjoyed collaborations with the Navarra, Heath, Maxwell and Benyounes quartets.

Recipient of the Freda Dinn and Ida Marbett Award, St James Chamber Music Prize and Prix de Musique de Chambre Festival Ravel, Joshua Lynch is a passionate devotee of chamber music and has already enjoyed a diverse and creative career.
