Tim Hugh

Following his success at the Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow, Tim Hugh enjoys an international career as soloist. He has since worked and recorded with many of the greatest conductors including Valery Gergiev, André Previn, Bernard Haitink, Sir Colin Davis, Sir Andrew Davis, Mstislav Rostropovich and Yehudi Menuhin. Mr. Hugh studied cello at Yale with Aldo Parisot and later studied with William Pleeth and Jaqueline du Pre while earning his Master of Arts in Medicine and Anthropology at St. Johns College, Cambridge. His developing interest in contemporary music led to performances of Boulez’s Messagesquisse with the BBC symphony. Mr. Hugh has also performed many contemporary works with the London Symphony Orchestra. As a chamber musician, he plays with the Nash Ensemble of London regularly and has recorded a large part of the piano trio repertoire with the Solomon Trio. As a solo cellist with the London Symphony Orchestra, he has performed the cello concertos of Elgar, Shostakovich, Haydn, Dvorak, Messiaen and Walton with the London Symphony Orchestra, as well as the cello solo in Strauss’s Don Quixote.
