Philip Dukes (viola)

Philip Dukes’s recital debut at London’s South Bank in 1991, described by The Strad magazine as “world class”, marked the beginning of a career that is now established as one of the foremost of his generation.

His principal teachers in London (Guildhall School) and New York have included Mark Knight, Yfrah Neaman and Michael Tree. Having completed his studies, Mr Dukes won a succession of awards, scholarships, prizes and competitions, and in June 1992 was selected for representation by Young Concert Artists Trust. In 1995 Philip Dukes won the coveted European Rising Stars Award, which led to recitals throughout Europe.

In 1995, he made his BBC Promenade Concert debut giving the world première of the viola concerto by Sally Beamish and at the 1997 Aldeburgh Festival, he gave the world première of the previously unpublished concerto for violin, viola and orchestra by Benjamin Britten. At the 1999 BBC Promenade Concerts, he gave the world première of Inside Story for violin, viola and orchestra by Piers Hellawell, returning again in 2005 to give the world première of the concerto for viola, cello and orchestra by Hugh Watkins. At the 2007 BBC Proms he appeared as a soloist in a performance of Sir Michael Tippett’s Triple Concerto with the BBC Symphony Orchestra conducted by Sir Andrew Davies.

Chamber music recordings have included the string quintets of Beethoven and Brahms, the sextets of Brahms and the complete viola quintets of Mozart with The Nash Ensemble, with whom Philip has been a principle guest player since 1992.

In addition to his solo engagements, Philip is Professor of Viola at the Royal Academy of Music in London, Artistic Director at Marlborough College and a visiting Professor at McGill University, Montreal. Mr Dukes has also been a member of the Plane/Dukes/Rahman Trio since 1992. In 2006 Philip Dukes was unanimously elected a Fellow of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in recognition of his success as an international viola soloist and made an Honorary Associate of the Royal Academy of Music in 2007.
