Ulrich Heinen

Ulrich Heinen cameĀ in England, at Simon Rattle’s invitation, to become principal cellist and section leader of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. His formidable technique and musicianship allowed him further to develop his solo career with recitals, concerto performances and regular appearances as recitalist on BBC Radio 3. He co-founded the Birmingham Contemporary Music Group (BCMG), which has become one of Britain’s most important ensembles for contemporary music. He has appeared with BCMG in many festivals in Britain and abroad, both as member of the ensemble and as soloist.
