Cellist based in London, available for session work and concerts.

Roxanna Albayati is a freelance cellist based in London, UK, currently completing her MA in Performance and Music Education at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. In 2015 she completed a BMus in Music at Goldsmiths, University of London, specialising in classical performance under the supervision of Rebecca Turner and Danny Driver, as well as music education under Maria Krivensky. Roxanna has participated in masterclasses with cellists such as Alexander Ivashkin, Nicolas Altstaedt, Oliver Coates, and is currently training under Natalia Pavlutskaya. Roxanna's greatest interest in performance lies in contemporary classical music. Through working with local composers and contemporary ensembles, she has become exposed and heavily involved in this part of the music world. She finds working with composers and pushing her own boundaries of performance highly exciting, and is always searching for new forms of style and preformative expression. Roxanna is the principal cellist of the New Maker Ensemble as well as the London Contemporary Chamber Orchestra. She has played in contemporary music conferences at Goldsmiths, as well as the University of Surrey, and often performs in events and art galleries across London. As an avid performer, Roxanna regularly performs in small chamber groups for private events across London, and has performed in venues such as, the Grosvenor House Hotel, the Coronet Theatre, Two Temple Place, St. John's Smith Square and the Southbank Centre.

I was fortunate enough to work with Roxanna recently. She was incredibly professional, very quick and most importantly her playing was beautiful. She was an asset to the session and enhanced the music she played.

Roxanna and the quartet she worked with on the album ‘Alt Rock Scores’ produced work of a very high standard, and added a dimension of musical accomplishment to the recordings that has enriched the project in a very pleasing manner. Her conduct is always friendly, professional and concise and she provided me with all of the players details in a very prompt manner. I shall certainly contact her in view of further work in the future. (Session work for Pedigree Cuts)
