Collaborators

Clare O'Connell - Cellist

Clare O’Connell

 

A passionate performer, arranger, writer and curator, Clare O'Connell is a cellist specialising in contemporary chamber music. She is a member of visionary ensemble Lontano, the 12-piece cross genre ensemble of multi instrumentalists Propellor and the Storytellers Ensemble; she has a duo partnership with internationally acclaimed harpist Eleanor Turner; and is a regular collaborator with many other chamber music, chamber opera projects & music artists.

Her arrangements explore the parallels between composers both ancient and modern, allowing the music to speak on its own terms unfettered by historical context. They have been performed in Westminster Abbey, the Wigmore Hall  and on BBC radio 3.

During the past year she wrote, arranged, recorded and produced her debut solo album The Isolated Cellist released by Stone Records in April 2021, a deeply personal collection of ancient & modern music for solo and layered cello gathered to perform to her local community during the coronavirus crisis in summer 2000.

David Le Page - Violinist

David Le Page

Le Page's violin playing has a natural, warm tone and an instinctive, improvisatory style, while his eclectic approach to writing, arranging and performing has been formed by an interest in many musical genres; from baroque and folk through to jazz, contemporary classical and experimental rock, pop and electronica.

His involvement with new music has led to participation in numerous commissions and world premieres that have included working closely with composers such as John Woolrich, Thomas Adès, Douglas Cuomo, Paul Moravec, Tansy Davies, Gerald Barry, John McCabe, Huw Watkins, Joe Cutler, Joe Duddel and Errolyn Wallen.
