Guy Johnston and Tom Poster

Guy Johnston (cello) and Tom Poster (piano)

Guy Johnston
One of the most exciting and versatile British cellists of his generation, Guy was born into a local musical family.   He joined his brothers in the choir of King's College, Cambridge and went on to achieve important early success in the BBC Young Musician of the Year title, and received a Classical Brit Award at the Royal Albert Hall.   He has made many important debuts including at the First Night of the BBC Proms playing the Elgar Cello Concerto.   Guy regularly performs at home and abroad and is known locally as the founding Artistic Director of the Hatfield House Chamber Music Festival.

Tom Poster
Tom is a musician whose skills and passions extend well beyond the conventional role of the concert pianist.   In demand internationally as a soloist and chamber musician across an unusually extensive repertoire, he has been described as "a marvel, [who] can play anything in any style" (The Herald), "mercurially brilliant" (The Strad), and as having "a beautiful tone that you can sink into like a pile of cushions" (BBC music).

Guy and Tom have been friends and performed together for many years including as part of the Aronowitz Ensemble formed in 2004.   Their programme for us will feature:
Smyth Sonata in C, op 5
Grieg Sonata in A minor, op 36
Rachmaninov Sonata, op 19
