Richard Lester (cello)

One of Britain's most outstanding cellists, Richard Lester has earned distinction as a concerto and recital soloist, as an accomplished chamber musician, and as the principal cellist of the Chamber Orchestra of Europe. Alongside a career as a 'modern' player he is also passionately interested and involved in 'period' performance practice.

Richard Lester was a member of the piano quartet Domus with whom he made a number of award-winning recordings and toured throughout the world. He gives regular recital performances and is often heard on radio both in Britain and abroad. For Hyperion he has recorded, with pianist Susan Tomes, the complete cello-and-piano works of Mendelssohn.
