Fenella is delighted to be joining the Cambridge Creative Management roster for worldwide general management.

Last year Fenella was grateful to receive an award from RPS's Enterprise Fund in association with Harriet's Trust. Their support has enabled her to build on the online work she did during the Covid lockdowns in 2020, as well as supporting composers with high quality recordings of their solo violin works. Her video report is now online. The biggest of thanks to Royal Philharmonic Society and Harriet's Trust!
In 2021 when we were back in lockdown and concerts were cancelled once again, Fenella joined Patreon as a way to stay in touch with listeners and keep performing in different ways. For her 2022 New Year's Resolution she's doing the #100DaysOfPractice Challenge, sharing a video of her practising every day with subscribers. Here's a taster!
Fenella's recent performance of Fauré & Saint-Saëns with Martin Roscoe at the Oxford Lieder Festival has been described by the Sunday Times as "performances combining passionate élan with dizzying virtuosity & ripe Romantic expression." There's a little taster here, and the full performance will remain online here until the end of November 2021.
RPS Enterprise Fund Award
Fenella is extremely grateful to the Royal Philharmonic Society and Harriet's Trust for an award as part of their new Enterprise Fund. Their support will help her to build on the online performances given over the pandemic, acquire new recording equipment and receive mentoring time with the fabulous David Taylor. Here's a little Lark Ascending trying out the new kit.
New Recordings for 2021
During 2020 Fenella recorded 3 new albums. Covid has unsurprisingly meant delays, but the first of these, solo works by Sibelius with BBC National Orchestra of Wales and George Vass is due for release in April on Resonus. The following two recordings (a collection of Caprices for solo vioin, from Paganini through to new commissions, and some more Sibelius) will follow in the coming months. Thank you to everyone who has supported these recordings!
