WEST Fife music lovers are in for a treat as the ‘doyen of British cellists’ will be appearing at the Carnegie Hall in next month.

Multiple award-winning cellist Julian Lloyd Webber will be in Dunfermline on 14th November as part of his new UK concert tour, ‘Travels With My Cello’ which kicks off next week.

The tour will see him performing for the first time in public with his wife, Chinese cellist Jiaxin Cheng, on selected dates.

For his Dunfermline date, Lloyd Webber will be giving a recital with Pam Chowhan on the piano.

In words, live performance and video, he will explore his collaborations with an extraordinary array of musicians, and play a selection of his favourite pieces interspersed with anecdotes about his musical life.

The acclaimed cellist, who was the first official busker on the London Underground, has performed recitals and concertos around the world with leading international orchestras such as the Berlin Philharmonic and the London Symphony.

He has also won the Brit Award for his Elgar Cello Concerto.

This was conducted by Yehudi Menuhin and chosen as the finest-ever version by the BBC Music Magazine.

In 2008, he was invited by the British Government to be chairman of its ‘In Harmony’ project - inspired by Venezuela’s legendary El Sistema programme - and he works to promote personal and community development amongst children and families in some of England’s most deprived areas.

‘Travels With My Cello’ is at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £22.50 and are available online at www.attfife.org.uk
