Charles Medlam (Conductor, Cello)

Born: England

The English conductor and cellist, Charles Medlam, studied the cello in London, Paris, Vienna and Salzburg before becoming interested in the bass viol and early performing styles. After a year lecturing and playing in the resident string quartet at the Chinese University of Hong Kong he returned to Europe and studied with Maurice Gendron at the Paris Conservatoire, Wolfgang Herzer in Vienna and subsequently cello with Heidi Litschauer and performance practice with Nikolaus Harnoncourt in Salzburg.

Charles Medlam founded London Baroque with Ingrid Seifert in 1978. He teaches cello, viola da gamba and chamber music at the Nordic Baroque Music Festival in Nordmaling, Sweden. He also plays in a piano trio which delights in all unusual music from Beethoven till yesterday. He plays baroque music on a Perugian cello made by Finnocchi in about 1720 and later music on a Lorenzo Ventapane made in Naples in 1806.
