Notes & Reviews:

One of the foremost cellists of her generation makes an indelible impression scaling the pinnacle of the cello repertoire, J.S. Bach’s Six Suites for Unaccompanied Cello. Familiar to record collectors as a member of the Benvenue Fortepiano Trio, Tomkins is equally at home in an intimate house concert setting or anchoring the cello section of the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, with whom she has become a familiar face.

Classic FM Magazine
Tomkins uses two instruments, both tuned at Baroque pitch: an original English cello from 1798 and a modern copy of a Gofriller five-string for No. 6. The latter's sound is thinner, but more vibrant...Her speeds are relatively slow and her tone coolly academic rather than warm.
