“I have had an immensely fulfilling career and feel privileged to have worked with so many great musicians and orchestras but now I have to move on.  I now need time to reflect and to consider this sudden and distressing life-changing situation and there will be no further comment at this time,” the statement concluded.

His final performance as a cellist will be on May 2nd with the English Chamber Orchestra.
