Russell Keable has established a reputation as one of the UK's most exciting musicians. As a conductor he has been praised in national and international papers. 'Keable and his orchestra did magnificently' wrote The Guardian, 'one of the most memorable evenings at the South Bank' said The Musical Times. He performs with orchestras and choirs throughout the British Isles including the London Mozart Players, Manchester Camerata, and RPO; has conducted in Prague and Paris (concerts filmed by French and British television); and recently made his debut with the Royal Oman Symphony Orchestra in Dubai.

His performance of Errollyn Wallen's Spirit Symphony (BBC Concert Orchestra/KSO at the RFH) won the Radio 3 Listeners Award.
