Hetti Price


Hetti Price is quickly earning a reputation as an outstanding soloist, chamber musician and continuo player. She studied at Birmingham Conservatoire under the tutelage of Adrian Brendel, Richard Lester, Richard Jenkinson, Alexander Baillie, Joseph Crouch and Henrik Persson, where she won every available competition. Whilst there, she attended the International Musicians Seminar at Prussia Cove, the Domaine Forget Festival in Canada, and the Britten-Pears Young Artist Programme in Snape. She was also a Chamber Music Fellow at the Birmingham Conservatoire, as well as at Pro Corda.

Hetti has featured as a soloist on BBC Radio 3’s ‘In Tune’, and regularly performs in differing venues across the UK, which include intimate chamber music society venues, and larger establishments such as the Southbank Centre in London, and Birmingham Town Hall. She has played with orchestras such as the English Symphony Orchestra, Birmingham Royal Ballet Sinfonia, Orchestra of the Swan and the Longborough Festival Orchestra, and is principal cellist of Eboracum Baroque Orchestra.

She divides her time between the ‘modern’ cello (as on this CD), and period instruments such as the baroque and classical cello, the bass violin, the viola da gamba, the pardessus and the arpeggione. She has recorded various commercial CDs on these instruments, the most recent being a recording of Handel’s nine German Arias with soprano Penelope Appleyard with Convivium Records.
