Corinne Morris (cello) was brought up in Ealing, and studied the cello at the Royal College of Music and the Paris Conservatoire. During her studies, Corinne worked with Paul Tortelier, Mtislav Rostropovich, André Navarra, Bernard Greenhouse and Ralph Kirshbaum. She was a prizewinner of the Maria Canals International Cello Competition in Spain, and the International French Music Competition in France. She spent five years in the Opera National de Paris, and performed all over Europe in solo concerts and with various prestigious orchestras. After a 4 year-long shoulder injury, Corinne is resuming her solo career. She now has a considerable reputation as an exceptional cellist, having released her debut CD ‘Macedonian Sessions' in 2013. Her latest CD with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra was released in the summer by Linn Records in 2017. It features concerti by Haydn and Monn, and has had a phenomenal response from the media and public alike. It went straight into the top of the UK Official Classical Charts and was ClassicFM's “Drive Discovery” album of the week.
