Brook Ensemble
A brilliant ‘cellist at an early age, Jacqueline studied with a series of legendary teachers including William Pleeth, Amaryllis Fleming, Aldo Perisot (at the Banff Centre of Arts in Canada), Joan Dickson and has emerged as an extraordinarily versatile and well-rounded musician, undoubtedly one of the finest British ‘cellists of her generation with a recital career that has taken her round the world.

Besides performances throughout London (with concerto appearances at the South Bank Centre) she has toured Russia, America, Canada, the Far East, Italy, France, Spain and Norway as a solo 'cellist including a trip to Italy to win the Rovera D’ore International competition in Genoa.

 

 

 

Back in England, she is much demand as a free-lance chamber and orchestral musician, guest leading the Irish Chamber Orchestra, guest sub-principle of BBC Philharmonic and recently as a guest sub-principle and co-leader of BBC NOW and has toured America with them as sub-principle. The combination of a fearsome, phenomenally honed technique and an enquiring open-minded musical sensibility means she is happy performing showy tunes as she is playing a Shostakovich Sonata. Over the last few years she has been working extensively with the highly acclaimed Marianne Olyver Gypsy Orchestra, notably Jacqueline’s breathtaking performance of Popper’s famous Hungarian Rhapsody, that is on their latest CD.
