About

Philip Higham cello

Philip Higham's first-class artistry has earned international critical plaudits, prompting the Washington Post to describe him as 'a major talent'.

The Scottish cellist, born in 1986, first performed Bach's Cello Suites during his mid-twenties and went on to apply the energy of youth and the experience of deep study to the job of recording them in 2014. Higham's vision of the works also draws on his early studies as a pianist to connect with the harmonic conception and subtle voicing of Bach's counterpoint. 'I love trying to get inside Bach's mind as a craftsman, trying as much as possible to be a detective, not just a blind servant', he comments.
