Her repertoire extends from the Baroque to the present day, including all the standard works, but also much lesser-known music. She made her début as a soloist with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra when she was 19.

Garfield Jackson was born in London into a family of jazz trumpet players with a wide-ranging appreciation of music. He began violin studies at the age of seven with Beryl Morreau, a viola student of Lionel Tertis and a founder member of the McNaghten String Quartet.

Entering the RAM on a scholarship, he concentrated on the viola with Peter Schidlof and Stephen Shingles. Chamber music played a major part in his musical life.
