Biography

Praised by orchestras for his inspiring musicianship, British conductor and pianist Angus Webster is one of the most promising musicians of his generation. Since winning joint top prize and the orchestra prize at the J. Panula International Conducting Competition in 2018, Angus was selected to become one of the first Salonen Fellows at the Colburn School in Los Angeles where he studies under the personal mentorship of Esa-Pekka Salonen.

In addition to working with the Colburn School's flagship orchestras and assisting Salonen with his engagements around the world, Angus will make his début with the Philharmonia Orchestra in February 2020 conducting two concerts including Beethoven's Symphony No. 3, 'Eroica' and Brahms' Symphony No. 2 in Bedford and Canterbury.

Born in 1999, Angus spent his childhood in Cornwall, England, and began his musical studies aged six with piano lessons from Elena Needham. Aged nine, he started producing and presenting a classical music programme live on local radio in Cornwall, and three years later Angus made his conducting début with Cornwall Youth Orchestra in Tchaikovsky's Romeo & Juliet. He was later appointed principal conductor, and together they went on to receive national acclaim with invitations to perform at Birmingham Symphony Hall and Royal Albert Hall in London. 

Angus is also a passionate chamber musician and collaborates as a pianist with outstanding musicians from around the world. He has studied piano with Alasdair Beatson, viola with Tim Boulton, conducting with Patrick Bailey, and chamber music with Ferenc Rados and Rita Wagner at the International Musicians Seminar, Prussia Cove.​
