'Combining warmth of tone with a technical command that reaches dazzling proportions, he leaves little doubt as to the success that lies ahead of him ...' - William Pleeth
The young British cellist Jamie Walton studied at Wells Cathedral School and the Royal Northern College of Music with Margaret Moncrieff before studying privately with William Pleeth.
He plays a 1712 Guarneri, and, with pianist Daniel Grimwood, he appears regularly at Wigmore Hall in London and Symphony Hall in Birmingham. He has recorded several CDs, including two releases for Signum Classics with the Philharmonia Orchestra, and these have received very favourable reviews.
He is a member of the Worshipful Company of Musicians and has been given the Freedom of the City of London.
