Passion for music in Seaton

PUBLISHED: 10:44 18 January 2011


CELLIST Nathaniel Boyd is a passionate and dedicated musician who combines a busy chamber music career with frequent solo engagements.

He studied at the Junior Guildhall and the Royal Northern College of Music with Hannah Roberts and Ralph Kirshbaum, graduating in June 2005.

Still only in his 20s, Nathaniel is passionate about chamber music and has performed in numerous Chamber Music Festivals both in England and abroad at venues such as St Martin in the Fields and the Barbican.

In March 2002, he performed Boccherini’s G major cello concerto at St James’ Piccadilly with the London Pergolesi Sinfonietta and was subsequently invited to return as soloist.

As part of the current SeatonMusic concert series, he is to appear at Seaton Town Hall on Thursday, January 20 (tomorrow), with pianist Simon Lane. Their programme is varied with music from JS Bach’s G Major Gamba Sonata and Brahms’ Sonata No. 2 in F Major to the attractive Five Pieces in Folk Style by Robert Schumann and Prokoviev’s Sonata for Cello and Piano in C Major.

This is a chance to see a major, young, musical talent and promises to be a rewarding evening. The concert takes place in Seaton Town Hall on January 20, and starts at 7.30pm.

Tickets cost £12 (free if you are a student) and are available on the door or from Eve Gallery, Fore Street, Seaton, telephone (01297) 21482 if you wish to book in advance. Either way you will be assured of a warm welcome.
