Description

Join us for a rarely heard programme with music:

Suite for cello No 3 in C major BWV 1009 - Johann Sebastian Bach,
Boreal - Amanda Feery
Suite for unaccompanied viola - Imogen Holst
Pennillion, for solo viola - Sally Beamish
Five Sketches for Viola - Elizabeth Maconchy

Emerging as one of the most sought after young violists internationally, Rosalind has collaborated with Tabea Zimmermann at the Wigmore Hall, the Arcanto Quartett at the Beethovenhaus in Bonn, & Gerhard Schultz at the Salzburg Festival. She has given recitals at the Royal Festival Hall, Purcell Room, Wigmore Hall, Aldeburgh Festival, the Slovak Philharmonic Bratislava, & Het Concertgebouw Kleine Zaal. At the age of 17, she won two prizes at the Lionel Tertis Competition, subsequently performing with the European Union Chamber Orchestra at the Emilia Romagna Festival in Italy, and in the UK with violinist Tasmin Little. She was also prizewinner at the 2013 Tertis Competition (five prizes including Yuri Bashmet’s President’s Prize) and has received awards from Making Music (AYCA 2016), Martin Musical Scholarship Fund, MBF, Kirckman Concert Society, & the Countess of Munster Trust. A keen chamber musician, Rosalind is a member of Trio Anima (flute, viola & harp), & the recently formed Albion String Quartet (with Tamsin Waley-Cohen, Emma Parker & Nathaniel Boyd.) She has broadcast live on BBC Radio 3 ‘In tune’ & records for Delphian in September 2016, after attending the Marlboro Music Festival. Rosalind read Music at Cambridge University, and previously studied with David Takeno at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, and Kim Kashkashian at the New England Conservatory.

Since September 2016 Rosalind is artist in residence at the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel in Belgium, under the direction of Miguel da Silva.
