The cellist Susanne Beer combines solo, chamber music and orchestral playing in her active career. Her chamber music includes appearances at the Konzerthaus in Vienna,the Prinzregenten Theater and the Staatsoper in Munich and at London's Wigmore Hall as a member of the Soloists of the London Philharmonic Orchestra, of which orchestra she has been co-principal cellist since 1995.
She has also been invited to be guest principal in several other orchestras in Europe and America, and to play in the World Orchestra for Peace, founded by Sir Georg Solti.
Susanne plays film music as well as world music, having worked with film music writer A.R. Rahman (Slumdog Millionaire), Howard Shore (Lord of the Rings) and Deborah Mollison (East is East) amongst others.
Cinemacello sees Susanne Beer and Gareth Hancock perform much-loved pieces of classical music that have been frequently used in films over the years.
To complement her teaching Susanne has written a book for her young students. It is supposed to motivate the pupils and help them with their cello practice at home. It is not a study book or text book but an entertaining story, very imaginative and with beautiful illustrations by Rosie Brooks: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1709265747/sophie-and-the-cello-book-with-audio-cd?ref=email
Dear cello friends, I have news! I started my new cello school, called 'The Cello Corner'. A cello school for children and adults. We will be teaching the cello with the traditional as well as the Suzuki method. I would recommend the Suzuki method for children, especially very young children (as young as there years old!). Please have a look at our website and get in touch with me if you are interested. Click on: www.thecellocorner.co.uk All the best!
