Welcome to the Amadeus website

The Amadeus Orchestra is one of the world's foremost training orchestras for young professionals and music students. They meet several times a year for coaching at the highest level. The Amadeus has helped launch careers with every major British orchestra, and others as far afield as the Boston Symphony and the Hong Kong Philharmonic, and their concerts have become renowned for their quality and vitality.



Cellist Julian Lloyd Webber announced that he has been forced to stop playing due to a herniated disc in his neck which has reduced the power in his right arm.  His final performance as a cellist will be on 2 May at the Forum Theatre, Malvern with the English Chamber Orchestra.

Lloyd Webber said: “I am devastated. There were so many exciting plans that cannot now come to fruition. I have had an immensely fulfilling career and feel privileged to have worked with so many great musicians and orchestras but now I have to move on.

The orchestra is extremely sad to have missed this opportunity to play with Julian again but is also delighted to be able to announce that RAPHAEL WALLFISCH will be joining us instead on 24th July in Exeter Cathedral for a performance of Elgar's cello concerto.
