Guy Johnston returns to the University after his performance of Elgar’s cello concerto in The Bramall in November 2017. Guy’s concert appearances take him across the World and include concerto performances at major festivals, including the First Night of the BBC Proms.

He performs alongside pianist Sam Haywood with a programme that includes Beethoven’s collection of variations on Mozart’s opera The Magic Flute, as well as Schubert’s Sonata for Arpeggione (a stringed instrument fretted like a guitar yet bowed like a cello) in a transcription for cello.
