Richard Tunnicliffe returns to Wymondham after performing in last year’s concert with Norwich Baroque. His programme will feature three Bach Suites for Cello, No 1 in G Major, No. 3 in C Major and No, 5 in C Minor.

His recording of the Bach cello suites was released in 2012 on Linn. The culmination of many years of study and countless performances, it has been very warmly received by critics: The Sunday Times praised its “clear-sighted, intelligently informed yet emotionally engaged performances”and the Independent on Sunday chose the disc as one of the “best classical releases of 2012”.

He has also recorded lesser-known works by English composers. These include John Garth whose 6 cello concerti of 1760 (Avison Ensemble, Divine Art) were the first to have been published in England and – from more recent times – Buxton Orr (String Quartets, String Trio/Toccata Classics) and John Joubert (“Kontakion” for cello and piano, with the late John Mc Cabe/Toccata).
He is a member of the recently-formed Trio York.

Since 2004 he has been a member of the renowned viol consort Fretwork whose captivating performances and many recordings have earned them admirers all over the world. He is also principal cello of the Avison Ensemble, and is regularly invited as a guest principal cello or viola-da-gamba soloist with major orchestras and conductors

Richard teaches at the Royal College of Music, London and at CEMPR Birmingham, and he has given master-classes, seminars and lecture-recitals across the globe.
