Baillie, Alexander (cello)

Alexander Baillie (cello)

Alexander Baillie is internationally recognised as one of the finest cellists of his generation. He began playing the cello at the comparatively late age of twelve, having been directly inspired by the late Jacqueline du Pré. He went on to study at London’s Royal College of Music with Joan Dickson and Anna Shuttleworth and with André Navarra in Vienna.

Alexander Baillie has appeared with many British orchestras as well as appearing regularly as cello soloist in concertos, recitals and festivals throughout the world. Appearances with British orchestras have included the Elgar Cello Concerto with the London Symphony Orchestra under Andrew Litton, the Schumann Cello Concerto with the BBC Symphony under Marek Janowski at the Proms, the Walton Cello Concerto under the late Sir Alexander Gibson with the Royal Philharmonic and the Dvořák Cello Concerto with the City of Birmingham Symphony under Sir Simon Rattle. He has also directed and performed the Haydn and Boccherini concertos with the English Chamber Orchestra. Alexander Baillie has given notable first performances of works by Penderecki, Hans Werner Henze, Takemitsu, Colin Matthews and H K Gruber.

Recordings include the Tippett Triple Concerto with the composer conducting and the Shostakovich First Concerto with Benjamin Zander and the Boston Philharmonic. Alexander Baillie’s version of the Britten Cello Suites achieved the highest acclaim in the New York press.

He is Professor of Cello in Bremen, founder member of 'Gathering of the Clans' Cello School as well as Guest Visiting Professor at the Australian National Academy of Music in Melbourne.
