Cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason was already a rising talent on the classical-music scene when he performed at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in 2018, but the event—with an audience of two billion—brought him worldwide attention. In an interview with the Philadelphia Inquirer (login may be required), Kanneh-Mason discusses his performances of Haydn’s Cello Concerto in D Major with the Philadelphia Orchestra this weekend, upcoming projects, contemporary composers, and the historic composer who he wishes had written a concerto for cello.
