Thomas Gregory graduated in 1996 from the Guildhall School of Music in Drama
in his hometown of London. From then he continued his studies at the
University of Michigan, completing both a Masters and Specialist degree. He
studied with the imminent Danish Cellist, Erling Blondal Bengtsson.
During his time in Michigan, he performed often as soloist, including a
performance of the Walton Concerto with the University Symphony Orchestra.
Thomas also received a fellowship to attend the Aspen Music Festival in
Colorado, which he attended for two summers.
Since graduating, Thomas has lived in both New York and London and enjoys an
active performing and teaching career. Future engagements include a
performance of the Dvorak Concerto in London later this year.
Music For Four Cellos
The first version of the second movement of this piece, was written for my
cello teacher's birthday at the time, and dates back to January 1992. I was
delighted to have the opportunity of re-working the movement for the first
Celloholics concert of Brave New Works last May. I felt however, that the
piece was too short and simple to stand alone, and set about composing two
additional movements to accompany it for this second Celloholics concert. I
am delighted that Brave New Works have given me the opportunity and
motivation to complete this piece, and hope you will enjoy it. [notes by composer]
