The Razumovsky Quartet
Ellie Fagg | Tom Norris | Dorothea Vogel| Orlando Jopling

Described by the Strad magazine as playing ‘with a sense of enchantment’, Ellie Fagg enjoys a varied career performing around the world as a soloist, chamber musician and orchestral player. Her love of chamber music began at the age of seven at Pro Corda and she went on to lead the National Youth Orchestra in 2001. She studied at the Royal College of Music as an Associated Board Scholar and won coveted awards from MBF and Countess of Munster.

She has appeared regularly at the Wigmore Hall with the Scottish Ensemble and Aurora Orchestra and at Kings Place with her Jazz-Classical fusion group, Living Room in London. Ellie has toured extensively with the LSO and with European Camerata. With the Puertas Quartet she has made three tours of New Zealand and recorded two CDs on Atoll records to critical acclaim.

Tom Norris graduated from London’s Guildhall School of Music and Drama and went on to study in Banff, Canada before joining the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra as Principal 2nd Violin. Since returning to London, Tom has been a principal violinist of the London Symphony Orchestra.

Alongside life in the orchestra, Tom has collaborated with countless musicians, ranging from the Schubert Ensemble to Roger Daltrey and The Who. He has recorded with Nanci Griffith, Elvis Costello and Andrea Bocelli, and formed the Puertas Quartet, who’s debut CD was critics choice in the Strad Magazine. Tom is also a singer, songwriter and composer, writing for TV and film. He released his debut album, Edge Of The World, in 2009.

Swiss-born Dorothea Vogel studied at Guildhall in London and at the Peabody Institute in the US, where she was awarded numerous scholarships and awards. She joined the historic Allegri Quartet soon after graduating, and now plays with the critically-acclaimed Primrose Piano Quartet and the Narratio Quartet in Holland.

She has an impressive discography in the genres of chamber music and baroque playing, and has a particular interest in Historically Informed Performance. Alongside her busy chamber music schedule, Dorothea freelances with the LSO and other London orchestras, and teaches at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff.

His conducting work has ranged from guest music staff and conducting positions at the Royal Opera House, Royal Ballet and English National Ballet, to performing and recording with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the English Chamber Orchestra, the London Mozart Players and the Irish Chamber Orchestra among many others. He founded the contemporary opera company Tête à Tête and is now Artistic Director of Wild Arts.

His music-making as a cellist has ranged from over 150 solo recitals, recording the 6 Bach cello Suites to critical acclaim, a lifelong obssession with chamber music, and playing on numerous film scores and on tour as a guest tutti cellist with all of the great international orchestras based in London, but mostly the Philharmonia and London Symphony Orchestra.
