Meet the Masters

Cellophonics

Champions of all things Cello, Christopher Allan, Michael Atkinson, Adrian Bradbury and Ben Rogerson make up the quartet Cellophonics.

Their performances brim with warmth and sparkle with virtuosity, bringing to life the contrasting characteristics of the cello. 

From the operatic tones of Puccini's 'Tosca', to the driving rhythms of jazz lord Guy Barker's specially commissioned 'Wood on the Tracks'. With a myriad of stops along the way, their eclectic musical journey is something for everyone – be they music lovers in general, or the more seriously afflicted cello-holic.
