The cellist Guy Johnston’s career rapidly developed after he won the BBC Young Musician competition in 2000, going on to open the Proms and win a Classical Brit. He has performed with many leading international orchestras including the London Philharmonic, BBC Philharmonic, Philharmonia, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, Deutsches Symphonie Orchester and St Petersburg Symphony. Performances have included Tchaikovsky’s Rococo Variations with the Northern Sinfonia, the Elgar Concerto with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and works by Tavener and MacMillan with the Britten Sinfonia. He is also artistic director of the Hatfield House Chamber Music Festival and a Professor of Cello at the Royal Academy of Music. Guy Johnston’s début recital recording, with pianist Kathryn Stott received much critical acclaim, followed by a recording of David Matthews’ Dark Pastoral with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. His recent Naxos recording of the Cello Concerto by EJ Moeran [8.573034] has been widely acclaimed. He plays a 1714 David Tecchler cello, purchased for him with the help of the Stradivari Trust and the Royal Society of Musicians.
