Cellist Martin Lovett will receive a lifetime achievement award
at the Royal Academy of Music on 10 October. The presentation is
part of a day of concerts and workshops organised by the London
Cello Society. The evening concert honouring Lovett features Guy
Johnston and the Sacconi Quartet in a programme of music by
Boccherini, Dvorak and Schubert.
Lovett, who is 83, was cellist of the celebrated Amadeus Quartet for 40 years. As a member of that ensemble he was awarded an OBE, and also received the German Grand Cross of Merit and the Austrian Cross of Honour for Arts and Sciences.
