Elizaveta Lessoun and Susanne's Lockey Hill cello

Elizaveta Lessoun is the recipient of a three-year loan of Susanne Beer's Lockey Hill cello (c.1780). It is the cello that Susanne played on while she was co-principal cellist of the London Philharmonic Orchestra. Elizaveta is from Belarus and she studies with Melissa Phelps at the Royal College of Music in London. Elizaveta performed on this cello at Conway Hall Sunday Concerts in November 2020.
