Hear tracks from a new CD of cello music

Cover of 'Milo'

Cellist Guy Johnston plays pieces from his new CD Milo at King's on 2 May. Milo was released on 26 April and it has already received critical acclaim. Norman Lebrecht's chose it as his CD of the week on Dilettante, where he described it as 'irresistable'.

Johnston won the BBC Young Musician of the Year award in 2000 and his reputation continues to increase. According to The Strad, 'Johnston has already forged a place as one of the country's most promising and distinctive cellists.' Milo is his first recital CD and it includes work by Bridge, Britten and Turnage.

On 2 May Johnston will be accompanied by accomplished pianist Melvyn Tan. The concert starts at 8.30pm in the Hall at King's. Tickets cost £18, £12 (£5 student standby on the door only) and are available from the Cambridge Corn Exchange Box Office (01223 357851) and The Shop at King’s (01223 769340).

50 free tickets are available on the door for 8-25 year olds. This is funded by Cavatina Chamber Music Trust, who encourage young people's interest and involvement in chamber music.

This concert is parts of the Concerts at King's series.
