Award winner of the 2015 Philip and Dorothy Green Award for Young Concert Artists and 2013/14 Tillett Trust Young Artist cellist Ella Rundle performs as a soloist and chamber musician through out the U.K and Europe. She studied at the Yehudi Menuhin School and the Guildhall School of Music and Drama with Louise Hopkins and completed her Masters degree at the Universität der Künste, Berlin, with Konstantin Heidrich. She gave her Wigmore Hall recital debut in November 2013 to critical acclaim.

A passionate chamber musician, Ella is also a member of the cello octet “Cellophony” which was established in 2007 in London. They will be releasing their second CD in collabaration with Simon Callow in March. As a concerto soloist Ella has appeared with orchestras such as the Kensington Chamber Orchestra, New English Concert Orchestra and the Westminster Philharmonic.

'…a splendid account of Debussy's cello sonata, weaving together its disjointed eccentricities skilfully and quite briskly. Faure's Romance was eloquent and understated, and Chopin's Introduction and Polonaise Brilliante op.3 was performed with panache..' - The Strad, Wigmore Hall 2013.

After gaining a degree in Mathematics at Imperial College London, Gamal Khamis completed his formal musical education at the Royal College of Music. He first performed at the Wigmore Hall at the age of ten, and has since appeared at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Purcell Room, Cadogan Hall, Sage Gateshead, Oxford Lieder Festival, Buxton Festival and Chipping Campden Festival, as well as BBC radio and television. He has participated in festivals across Europe and North America, and has been lucky to receive guidance from musicians including Mitsuko Uchida, Richard Goode, Paul Badura-Skoda, Leon Fleisher and Robert Levin, among many others.

Gamal has been a Concordia Foundation Artist since 2010, a Park Lane Group Artist since 2013, and is a member of the Lipatti Piano Quartet who won the Elias Fawcett Trust Award at the 2016 ROSL Music Competition, and recently made their Wigmore Hall debut. He also performs regularly with Sinfonia Cymru. Gamal would like to thank The Carne Trust, Help Musicians UK, Else & Leonard Cross Charitable Trust, Kathleen Trust, Nicholas Boas Charitable Trust, and The Tillett Trust for their generous support.

‘The highlight of the evening was pianist Gamal Khamis, whose sensitivity and imagination shone out of his three performances.’ - Financial Times
