Daniel Yeadon (Cello, Viola da gamba)

Born: England

The English cellist and viola da gambist, Daniel Yeadon, originally studied cello and piano in the North of England. He graduated in physics at Oxford University and subsequently worked as a scientific book editor for Longman Publishing Company in London. The lure of music soon proved too strong and Daniel moved on to the Royal College of Music to gain a Diploma in Early Music Performance.

After training with the European Community Baroque Orchestra Daniel Yeadon became principal cellist of the renowned period instrument ensemble Florilegium, performing throughout the world at major venues such as the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, the Wigmore Hall in London and the Sydney Opera House. With Florilegium he has made twelve CD recordings for the Dutch company Channel Classics. In 1995 he joined the Fitzwilliam String Quartet, playing on both modern and period instruments. With the Quartet he appeared at all the major UK music festivals, toured the USA and Russia and made frequent radio and CD recordings.

Daniel Yeadon has taught cello and viola da gamba at the Royal College of Music and the Royal Academy of Music in London, at Cambridge and York Universities in the UK, and also at Bucknell and Penn State Universities in the USA.

Daniel Yeadon has now made Sydney his home and regularly appears with Salut! Baroque, Sinfonia Australis, Pinchgut Opera, Opera Australia, and the Australian Bach Ensemble. He will continue to perform regularly with many of the London-based period instrument ensembles including the English Baroque Soloists, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and The King’s Consort.
