Joy is delighted to have been awarded the post of Composer in Residence at Cambridge University Music Society for the 2016-17 season. …
Joy Lisney is one of the most exciting young musicians to emerge in recent years in a career combining the cello with composition and conducting. Her early promise was highlighted by Carlton Television when they chose her, at the age of six, as a possible high achiever of the twenty-first century.
She has since fulfilled expectations with a distinguished international career, launched by a debut series of two concerts at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw in 2012.
In autumn 2014 the Arditti Quartet gave the premiere of her most recent work, Apparitions - click here to listen.
In 2012 she recorded of a disc of Chopin, Vriend and Lutoslawski at the Leipzig Gewandhaus - listen to sample tracks >.
Joy plays on a Seraphin violoncello generously lent by Beare Violins and is supported by the Hattori Foundation.
