17 year old British cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason is quickly building an international reputation as an emerging young concert artist of outstanding potential.
A junior scholarship student of Ben Davies at London’s Royal Academy of Music Pre-College Programme, Sheku was last May awarded the coveted 2016 British BBC ‘Young Musician of the Year’ accolade.
He is a former major prize winner at the Royal Philharmonic Society Young Instrumentalist and Pro Corda Chamber Music Competitions – and in February of this year he was signed to a major recording contract with Decca Classics.
Sheku currently performs on a 1610 Antonius and Hieronymus Amati cello – on generous loan from a private collection.
