Acclaimed classical violinist, concerto soloist and chamber musician who has performed at such prestigious venues as London's South Bank Centre and Cadogan Hall and the the new Helsinki Music Centre. Fenella's solo and chamber performances have included broadcasts for BBC Radio 3, Classic FM, DeutschlandRadio Berlin, West-Deutsche-Rundfunk and BBC and Canadian TV as well as appearances around Europe, North and South America, Korea and Israel. 'Fenella Humphreys's performance is a wonder' (International Record Review) '... Fenella Humphreys is a top-notch violin soloist, producing a pure, sweet tone of piercing beauty...' (James A Altena, Fanfare Magazine) '... Fenella Humphreys is one of the few violinists with the guts and temerity (and the technique demanded by the music) to play Sibelius's chamber music... Sibelius's Opus 81 (1917-18) allowed Humphreys to demonstrate her complete absorption into this magical melodic world...' (Edward Clark, Classical Source).
