Luba Ulybysheva was born in Moscow and studied at the Gnessin Special Music School and the Russian Music Academy, before coming to London in 2003 to continue her studies at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and the Royal Academy of Music. She was the only cellist to win a prestigious scholarship from the Paganini International Competition in Moscow. In 2006 she won the First Prize at the Tunbridge Wells International Young Concert Artist Competition, followed by winning the MBF Music Education Award, the Muriel Taylor Young gifted Cellist Award, the Hattori Foundation, the Jellinek and the Kenneth Loveland awards. She made her solo debut at Wigmore Hall as part of the Razumovsky Young Artists Recital Series in 2008. As a concerto soloist, Luba has performed in Russia, the UK, and Europe with the Moscow State Symphony Orchestra, Moscow Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra, Russian State Symphony Orchestra Young Russia, etc. She has performed live on BBC Radio 3, BBC Radio Ulster and Classic FM. In 2018 Liubov joined the Royal Opera House orchestra and in the same year she released her debut recording, From the Shadow of the Great War, featuring works for cello and piano by English composers.
James Kreiling's solo career has focused on music of the early 20th century, in particular the piano works of Scriabin. His doctoral thesis, completed at the Guildhall School of Music, focused on the interaction of research, analysis, and performance practice in the interpretation of Scriabin's late piano sonatas. He has recorded two discs encompassing the composer's complete late piano music, which was released by Odradek in 2018 to great critical acclaim, including a five star review in BBC Music Magazine. Determined to bring Scriabin's often misunderstood work to a wider public, he has experimented with presenting music in unusual formats and locations and is a co-founder of Multiphonic Arts, mounting concerts which mix classical piano with other performance arts - poetry, drama and dance, folk and jazz.
