This chap is now a Young Artist in Residence with the RLPO, and he's very,very good.   I heard him play the Elgar cello concerto a couple of weeks ago,  and last night he played sonatas by Bocherinni, Poulenc, Debussy & Brahms accompanied by his sister Isata on piano.  Demand for the tickets was so much they had to move the performance to the main hall & they got a rapturous reception.  Really good emotional playing.   My regular seat is row C in the front stalls so I was really close.   :thumbsup:

He had a good start in music. Both his parents were musicians (I believe).

He has six siblings, too, and they're all musicians. :o Talented family for sure. http://www.kannehmasons.com/
