Tim Lowe - The Cellist

Review from Musical Opinion 

"Tim Lowe is fast establishing himself as one of the more comprehensively talented of the younger generation of British cellists, and the Wigmore Hall programme showed his musicianship in no uncertain terms. In every aspect of their demanding programme, Lowe and his gifted partner James Baillieu were wholly up to the challenges they had set themselves, producing in each instance performances of insight and character. Indeed, the news about this partnership appears to have spread, for there were a number of established cellists in the audience who had clearly come to hear (and applaud) Lowe and Baillieu. They were not disappointed: here was playing that reached the heart of every one of these pieces, and it was a refreshing change to hear the Saint-Saëns Sonata, for it is rarely encountered these days. Perhaps their mastery of Beethoven's challenging C major Sonata was the most impressive, for this work certainly does not 'play itself' in either of its multi-layered two movements. … a distinguished recital." 

James Palmer

“…the evening belonged to ‘cellist Tim Lowe, who gave a passionate and energetic performance …displaying remarkable agility, emotional maturity and an assertive sound, he absorbed himself entirely in the music and drew the entire audience in with him. A versatile, impressive and captivating performer who responded extremely well to the audience, he was an absolute joy to watch.”
