16th December 2016

I performed with Toby and the University of Cambridge Symphony Orchestra, it was a great experience. Toby is the most talented young conductor I played in UK

6th November 2016

Once again I have had the pleasure of being invited to play with CCMS under the baton of Toby. An excellent young conductor who his very clear in direction and always shows complete understanding of the works he is presenting; working particularly well with soloists as in the recent Schumann 'cello concerto with Leo Popplewell. I also was able to enjoy, from a position in the accompanying orchestra, a superb performance of Rhapsody in Blue with Toby as piano soloist last June.
