Young Classical Artists Trust Names New Artists for 2024

Pianist Amiri Harewood, the Fibonacci Quartet, and cellist James Morley will receive sought-after performance opportunities and mentoring


The Young Classical Artists Trust (YCAT) has named the three musicians/ensembles that will join its roster of young artists in 2024. The selected musicians are Amiri Harewood (piano), the Fibonacci Quartet, and James Morley (cello).

These players will be afforded a number of performance opportunities both in the UK and internationally, and will appear at venues such as Wigmore Hall, the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, and the Konzerthaus Berlin. They will also receive mentoring, support with career planning, publicity materials, and advice on digital promotion.

Pianist Amiri Harewood is presently studying with Danny Driver at the Royal College of Music. He has given recitals at the Conservatorio in Venice and the Mozart Music Festival in Forli, Italy. Harewood recently made his Royal Festival Hall concerto debut with Chineke! Orchestra.

The Fibonacci Quartet are a Resident Ensemble at the Escuela Superior de Musica Reina Sofia in Madrid and at the Dutch String Quartet Academy in Amsterdam. They received First Prize in the Royal Overseas League International Chamber Music Competition, as well as First Prize in the Cavatina Chamber Music Competition and First Prize in the International Triomphe de l’Art Competition in Belgium.

Cellist James Morley is a specialist in contemporary music and has premiered new solo works by Liza Lim, Josephine Macken, Ivan Liuzzo, Johannes MacDonald, ensemble works by Bernhard Lang, Stefan Prins, Elnaz Seyedi, Lucia Kilger, Clemens Thomas, Bree van Reyk, Séverine Ballon, Michael Wertmüller, and orchestral works by Thomas Adès. His work encompasses experimental improvisation, electronics, orchestral work, and post-instrumental performance.

"It’s always such an exciting moment as we welcome a new group of artists into the YCAT family," said Alasdair Tait, Chief Executive of YCAT. "The creative energy and genuine passion these young artists have demonstrated throughout the entire audition process, from the initial video applications, two live audition days in London and Germany and the final performances this week at Wigmore Hall, has been truly inspiring."
