'…a splendid account of Debussy's cello sonata, weaving together its disjointed eccentricities skilfully and quite briskly. Faure's Romance was eloquent and understated, and Chopin's Introduction and Polonaise Brilliante op.3 was performed with panache..'  - The Strad, Wigmore Hall 2013.

Ella has performed in venues such as the Barbican, Fairfield Halls, Purcell Room, Snape Maltings and Wigmore Hall. As a concerto soloist Ella has appeared with orchestras such as Kensington Chamber Orchestra, New English Concert Orchestra and the Westminster Philharmonic.
