cellist Steven Isserlis, who is the patron of our local music venue, the Jacqueline du Pre building, and thus turns up here at least once a year. He does a lot of work for children, including books and family concerts. (I remember one occasion when he introduced himself to the children thus: "I am the most famous cellist living in my flat.") Oh, and he plays the cello quite well, too. And has a great hair style (as you can see here). And he's 50 today.
