Jeremy Brooker Baryton

is one of the only performers in the world who currently specialises in the techniques of self-accompanied baryton playing. This complex method of playing requires the left thumb to pluck a separate musical line on the sympathetic strings which run underneath the fingerboard whilst simultaneously playing a different part on the bowed strings. He has been at the forefront of a contemporary revival of interest in the instrument through his performances, broadcasts and publications and has commissioned a number a new works from distinguished British composers. 
New Zealand, Hong Kong and throughout the UK and Europe, and issuing two widely acclaimed CDs.
