Robert Truman (cello)

Robert Truman was born in Sydney, Australia, where he studied at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music with John Painter. In 1971 he moved to London where he furthered his studies with Derek Simpson and William Pleeth.

After spending four years in the London Symphony Orchestra, Mr Truman was invited to become Principal Cello of the Royal Opera House Orchestra, Covent Garden, and in 1985 he joined The London Philharmonic as Principal Cello, staying for 20 years until 2005. Since leaving the London Philharmonic Orchestra, Robert Truman has become very much in demand as a guest principal cellist and chamber musician.

He plays on a Grancino instrument made in 1690. This is Robert Truman’s first solo recording.
