A keen amateur cellist, I play with the Orchestre Riviera Symphonique directed by Luc Baghdassarian, with fellow cellists studying at the Conservatoire de Vevey, with the Association Universitaire de Musique de Chambre and as well as with friends in ad hoc chamber groups. With my double life in Switzerland and the UK, I play two cellos, a French one inherited from my great-grandfather, who founded the Dumfries Municipal Orchestra in the 1930s, and the other made for me in 2012 by M. Hans-Martin Bader, farmer and master luthier, of Premier sur Romainmôtier, pictured below.
