"Brilliant playing...fully equal to Zelenka's virtuoso demands" Daily Telegraph

Huw Daniel (violin) is a member of the Dunedin Consort, Irish Baroque Orchestra, the Sixteen, and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment.  Since 2004 he has been leader of the Orquestra Barroca Casa da Música in Porto, Portugal, and has also been a regular guest leader for the English Concert, the Sixteen, the European Union Baroque Orchestra and Barokkanerne (Oslo).

"The violinist Huw Daniel led the way, waltzing on the spot so much that his Strictly contract surely awaits" The Times

The Herschel Trio

The Herschel Trio formed in 2011, its members all having relocated from London to the north of England.  Graham O’Sullivan (flute/recorder) has performed with the country’s leading baroque ensembles, and is a member of the Dunedin Consort.  Susanna Pell (viola da gamba) spent the first 25 years of her career touring the world and making highly acclaimed recordings with Fretwork and The Dufay Collective.  Her eclectic musical output has included appearances on the soundtracks of several films, including Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, and on Kate Bush’s 2005 album Aerial.  Mie Hayashi (harpsichord) has performed throughout the world both as a soloist and chamber artist, winning prizes at the 2005 Japan International Early Music Competition and the 2006 Bruges International Early Music Competition.  Her solo recordings include Ascents of the Soul (Omnibus Classics, 2016) and Royer – Pièces de Clavecin (Resonus Classics, 2019).   

Since 2017 the trio has promoted its own concert series based in York, inviting colleagues to join them performing programmes of chamber music spanning 4 centuries.  This year their concert series will include performances in County Durham, Northumberland and Newcastle in addition to their York concerts, and they will be joined by four more outstanding musicians: oboist Molly Marsh, violinist Huw Daniel, soprano Julia Doyle and Charlotte Barbour-Condini (recorder).

In 2017, the trio released their debut disc together ‘A Concert near Darmstadt’ (Omnibus Classics), a recording of music by Telemann.
