Guy Johnston

Born in 1981, Guy Johnston began cello lessons at the age of five. He studied with Steven Doane at the Eastman College of Music in Rochester, New York and continued his studies with Steven Isserlis at the International Musicians Seminar, Prussia Cove and Ralph Kirshbaum in the UK. He was voted BBC’s Young Musician of the Year in 2000 and has received the BRIT award for Best British Newcomer in 2002, as well as the Shell / LSO Gerald MacDonald Prize, Musiciens Bénévoles Fund Award and Suggia Gift. Since making an extraordinary debut at the BBC Proms performing Elgar’s Cello Concerto with the BBC Symphony Orchestra under Leonard Slatkin, he has become a fast-rising star on the international stage and enjoyed successes with major symphony orchestras across Europe and in Japan under conductors such as Yan Pascal Tortelier, Daniele Gatti, Robin Ticciati and Alan Burbayev. An enthusiastic chamber musician, he is a founder member of the Aronowitz Ensemble. Guy Johnston is heard regularly on BBC Radio 3 and Classic FM. www.guy-johnston.com
