Portrait of Rebecca Knight

As cellist in the Lawson Trio since 2007, Rebecca has performed at London’s Wigmore Hall, South Bank and King’s Place, and given live concert broadcasts on BBC Radio 3 and Australian Classic FM. The ensemble’s debut CD of newly commissioned work met with critical acclaim, receiving a 5-star review in BBC Music Magazine. Rebecca has also recorded cello sonatas of Louise Farrenc and Dame Ethel Smyth for Ambache Records, and contemporary chamber works for Champs Hill, Chandos and Oboe Classics. Rebecca works with orchestras and ensembles including Endymion Ensemble, Academy St Martin in the Fields, London Mozart Players and London Chamber Orchestra. She often appears as principal cello with City of London Sinfonia, Opera Holland Park and Wexford Festival Opera, and is a regular guest principal with Ulster Orchestra.

Rebecca enjoys distracting herself with foreign languages, and has studied Russian in St Petersburg, Serbian & Croatian at the UCL Slavonic department, and most recently Turkish on Skype from Diyarbakir. She dabbles in translating – including a recent stint as translation editor for ‘Russian Mind’ (Ruskaya Mysl’).
