Jane Salmon has established a reputation as one of the busiest and most successful cellists of her generation. A member of The Schubert Ensemble - Ensemble in Residence at Birmingham Conservatoire - her work as a chamber musician and as a recital soloist has taken her to more than 40 countries across the world and has involved her in more than 40 CD recordings, broadcasts for radio and television, festivals and performances in many leading venues. With the Schubert Ensemble, she gives over 50 concerts per year, has been involved in over 80 commissions and was a Winner of the Royal Philharmonic Chamber Music award for ‘Best Chamber Ensemble’.
As a recitalist she has premiered solo works on BBC Radio 3 and in concerts on London's South Bank and Wigmore Hall. Recital tours have included two visits to India where solo performances to large audiences were juxtaposed with educational work in Madras, Bangalore and Calcutta. More unusually, Jane was the on-stage cellist in the Royal National Theatre's award-winning production of the Arthur Miller play Broken Glass. A graduate of Cambridge University, Jane studied the cello with Amaryllis Fleming, Pierre Fournier and Johannes Goritzki. She won numerous prizes and awards and was selected for promotion by Young Concert Artists Trust which launched her solo career.
Although the Schubert Ensemble has been her principal commitment for nearly 20 years, Jane is also a founder member of the Endymion Ensemble and has appeared as a guest leader with the English Chamber Orchestra and London Sinfonietta. She also works with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and appeared as an ensemble player in the 2010 BBC Proms.
