The brilliant British cellist is known for premiering contemporary classics, writing children's books - and his hair.
Steven Isserlis was born in London on 19 December 1958 into a musical family. His grandfather was one of 12 musicians allowed to leave Russia in the 1920s to promote Russian culture - but he never returned. Steven’s mother was a piano teacher, one of his sisters plays viola, and the other is a violinist. He says playing music together was an integral part of his early family life.
