Jamie Walton is a prize-winning 'cellist who studied with Margaret Moncrieff and Bill Pleeth. Already an established soloist, he has performed as a recitalist worldwide. A recent performance of the Haydn Cello Concerto in C with the Vienna Chamber Orchestra at the Vienne Konzerthaus was rapturously received by both audience and critics.
"There was a rich fluid of absorbing musicianship here; a strength and subtlety that revealed flawless intonation, purity of sound and unfailingly found the music's expressive core." Daily Telegraph.
