Alexander Baillie (b1956)

Alexander Baillie began playing the cello at the age of twelve, inspired to do so by the example of Jacqueline du Pré. He studied with Joan Dickson and Anna Shuttleworth at London’s Royal College of Music from 1972, before going to the Hochschule für Musik in Vienna for lessons with André Navarra. Pedagogic influence also came from Pierre Fournier, William Pleeth and Mstislav Rostropovich. International recognition came when Baillie won prizes at the ARD Competition in Munich in 1978 (the year of his Wigmore Hall début) and the Casals Competition in Budapest in 1982.

Baillie is an active cello teacher, having worked regularly at the Royal College of Music with further appointments at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and Bremen Hochschule für Künste. He has also founded Gathering of the Clans, a summer school project for young cellists.
