Cellist and composer Cecilia Bignall is passionate about chamber music and contemporary music. She has won both the prestigious St Martin’s Chamber Music Competition and the Malta International Music Competition.
Cecilia graduated with a first class honours degree from the Royal Academy of Music in 2015, where she studied with Robert Cohen and Patrick Nunn.
She has performed extensively across the UK and internationally, including at the Oslo Opera House, St Martin-in-the-Fields, the Wigmore Hall, the International House of Music in Moscow, Kings Place Festival and St John’s Smith Square, and has performed world and international premiers at festivals in Russia and Italy, as well as at the Aldeburgh Festival, Sziget Festival, the Gabala Festival in Azerbaijan, and Japan.
She has been broadcast live on BBC Radio 3 during ‘Sound Frontiers’ Festival at the Southbank Centre, and was featured on Proms Extra in 2016 performing music by Gabriel Prokofiev, along with the composer himself.
Cecilia regularly performs contemporary music and jazz, including improvisations with electronics.
Cecilia plays an 1855 Derazey cello.
Tonight she will play Psalm51 by A Knaifel and other works for solo cello
