About

Described as 'a triumphant assertion' by Classical Music Magazine, Corinne Morris's relaunch album 'Macedonian Sessions' recorded with the Macedonian Radio Symphony Orchestra, marks the British/French cellist's return to the platform after a debilitating shoulder injury brought her career to a halt for over 5 years.
Corinne has a long list of professional accomplishments; she was chosen by Rostropovich to perform at his festival in Evian, and was invited to take part in the world-famous Verbier Academy in Switzerland. Corinne has performed throughout Europe and beyond. She has also made several recordings for the BBC, France Musique, Bayerischer. Corinne, a student of Raphael Sommer,  obtained an ARCM with honours (Royal College of Music, London) before continuing at the prestigious Conservatoire in Paris where she graduated in both cello and chamber-music.
Corinne's story has inspired many in the music industry and beyond. She gives regular talks at universities, and interviews for publications including International Arts Manager, Classical Music Magazine, Gramophone and Australia's Limelight Magazine. Most recently Corinne has been featured on BBC radio 3's 'In Tune' programme and her story will also be the subject of a film documentary to be released next year.
Corinne has been invited to tour China to give a series of concerts and masterclasses and will also be performing in Europe and South Africa. 

Corinne plays a cello by C.A. Miremont dated 1876 on loan to her by a private investor.

      Corinne Morris’ life and cello art: an interview
      2014-05-23 Performance Reviewed, London
      "Not long ago did I meet Corinne, barely a few months, so to speak; but shortness of time will never relate to pettiness of worth, therefore it was with personal and sincere diligence that I've indulged Corinne's re-debuting performance at The Forge with Nico de Villiers. Since then, I know she has been on a series of concerts in London and around; future looks better for early prodigy, battered halfway through her career by an injury – Corinne has fully recovered it seems, alive and kicking to deliver the best."

      Massenet Meditation (from Thaïs) - Corinne Morris #MacedonianSessions
      The Méditation de Thaïs is an interlude for violin and orchestra from the opera Thaïs by Jules Massenet, premiered in Paris in 1894. The monk Athanaël tries to convince the beautiful courtesan Thaïs to abandon her life of pleasure and seek salvation in God. As Thaïs reflects, the Meditation is played. The beautiful melody unfolds at a slow tempo marked Andante Religioso. Little by little, the piece develops, and the marking Poco a Poco Appassionato brings it to its climax before the return of the melody.
      The Meditation has been transcribed for other solo instruments, including the cello.

      "

      British/French cellist Corinne Morris had to overcome a debilitating shoulder injury to achieve her dream of performing in the world's great concert halls. She'll have an inspiring story to tell in this week's web chat.


      Corinne has made acclaimed recordings across Europe and has had lessons with greats like Paul Tortelier, Mtislav Rostropovich. She'll be here to tell us about what she's up to now, and offer advice to any musicians struggling with injury themselves. 


      We'll also make sure we drop in a question about her 1876 C.A. Miremont cello - maybe there's a great story there too! Join Tim Lihoreau and Corinne from 9am on Wednesday 26 November.

      Saint-Saëns Allegro Appassionato op 43 - Corinne Morris #MacedonianSessions
      Although first written for cello and piano by Camille Saint-Saëns, the Allegro appassionato op 43 was orchestrated by the composer in 1876. Both melodious and rhythmically challenging, this work is, in spite of its brevity, one of the composer's most popular works. Fast and passionate, it is nevertheless written in a sad mode, in true romantic tradition.
