William Conway (cello)

William Conway was born in Glasgow and studied at both the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama and the Royal College of Music where he was a prodigious prize-winner. He is principal cellist of the Chamber Orchestra of Europe and for ten years held the same position with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, performing regularly as soloist and director. He has recorded extensively, including the cello concerto written for him by Sir Peter Maxwell Davies and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, as well as a disc of music by John Bevan Baker for Linn Records (CKD 286).

In 1994 William was a prize winner at the Leeds Conductors’ Competition and has since established a dual career as cellist and conductor worldwide. He has conducted the major Scottish orchestras as well as Northern Sinfonia, English Sinfonia, Chamber Orchestra of Europe and the symphony orchestras of Cairo, Zagreb, Antwerp, Phoenix and Göttingen in all repertoires including opera.

He is co-founder and Artistic Director of Hebrides Ensemble and has commissioned over fifty new works in the last seventeen years. William has been presented with a Scottish Society of Composers Award for ‘an outstanding contribution to the promotion of contemporary music’.
