Erlend Vestby Cello Recital

Erlend Vestby Cello Recital



Come and see us at:

St. Saviour’s Church

Erlend performed unaccompanied the first three Bach Cello Suites at the Festival last year. The acoustics of St Saviour’s church are perfect for the music and this year we have invited Erlend to continue with suites 4, 5 and 6.

Norwegian cellist Erlend Vestby graduated from the Royal College of Music (RCM) in 2019 where he was an Anglo-Norse Award holder. He studied modern cello with Jakob Kullberg and baroque cello with Richard Tunnicliffe and works professionally on both instruments. He has performed extensively in the UK, Europe and Asia, and his baroque cello has brought him to venues such as St. George’s Hanover Square, Dartington Hall, Cadogan Hall, Queens Gallery Buckingham Palace, Ely Cathedral, Fairfield Halls and the Royal Festival Hall. Erlend is in high demand as a chamber musician performing with small ensembles and chamber orchestras such as Gabrieli, Florilegium, Bellot Ensemble, British Sinfonietta, Brandenburg Sinfonia and Brandenburg Baroque Soloists. As a soloist, he enjoys giving solo recitals where the music of Bach is usually present. He can frequently be heard at St John’s Smith Square London, he appeared at the Classic FM Christmas Concert 2022, and he performed the three first Bach Suites at the Dart Music Festival in May last year.
