Clients' reviews

Dori's playing in Vivaldi's The Four Seasons was brilliant!
Ruth J.
for a Concert in St.John's St
Dorottya Etheridge played an absolutely amazing Rachmaninoff sonata with Dominic Irving. There was power, passion and a great deal of poise from the stunning cellist Dori whilst playing the challenging and very technical Sonata in G minor. Dominic accompanied with precision and added a touch of playfulness on the piano. It was a very enjoyable evening listing to the two who helped lift the spirits for those listening online during the lockdown. She was a truly incredible performer.

Any tune you like can be put together into a beautiful string music arrangement to be performed on cello, making your event music unique and personalised."

Helpful information


I am friendly, professional and easily get on with other musicians. Using my iPad gives us the opportunity to select music easily.

Absolutely. I know many musicians in the area, other string players, pianist, harpist, singers, flautist. I am more than happy to play with them or someone you book yourself. I am an experienced player, always happy to play together with other musicians. I am happy to send you a quote.

It takes me about 15 minutes to set up, however I always arrive 45 minutes before booking time.

I need a chair on the day, otherwise I bring my cello and equipment.

I am based in Bath, I have played in several amazing venues such as Bath Abbey, Marlborough College Summer School, Wiltshire Music Centre, American Museum & Gardens

I will be the soloist, playing the beautiful Elgar’s Cello Concerto in 2023 August accompanied by The Fulltone Orchestra in Devizes. I have played Haydn Cello Concerto No.2 with orchestra.

I am very happy to do that. I need to know in advance.
