Calefax & Matthew Barley

Calefax &
Matthew Barley

The adventurous English cellist Matthew Barley is Calefax’s ideal ‘partner in crime’.

Matthew Barley is a master cellist who feels equally at home performing Renaissance or Romantic repertoire or contemporary electronic music. Barley: ‘Playing with Calefax is a dream come true – the opportunity to perform Walton’s cello concerto, one of the great works of the repertoire, in a chamber music setting.’ It is Calefax’s first collaboration with a cellist and the ensemble is keen to exploit the enormous range of this noble instrument in the diverse works on the programme.
