As soloist Marwood has worked with many leading conductors and orchestras. Engagements as soloist/director with leading chamber and symphony orchestras form a large part of his career. Formerly Artistic Director of the Irish Chamber Orchestra, he has also built strong relationships with the Academy of St Martin in the Fields, the Australian Chamber Orchestra, Les Violons du Roy and the Australian National Academy of Music.
Whilst not neglecting the Classical and Romantic repertoire, Anthony Marwood is a noted interpreter of modern and contemporary works. Violin concertos written for him include Thomas Adès’ Concentric Paths, Sally Beamish’s 1995 concerto, and a concerto by Ross Harris. Marwood first performed the Adès concerto in Berlin and at the BBC Proms, with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe conducted by the composer, before giving the US premiere with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the French premiere in Paris and the Russian premiere in St Petersburg. Marwood’s career has also been enriched by genre-bending presentations. Among these, the Academy of St Martin in the Fields’ fully staged production of Stravinsky’s A Soldier’s Tale—in which Marwood acted the role of the Soldier and played the violin part—was named one of the cultural highlights of the year by The Daily Telegraph.
Anthony Marwood is an enthusiastic chamber musician and enjoys close musical partnerships with Aleksandar Madzar, Thomas Adès, Steven Isserlis, and Martin Fröst, among others. He regularly appears at chamber music festivals. He has toured internationally and won a Royal Philharmonic Society Award as a member of The Florestan Trio. Anthony’s many recordings for Hyperion include much of the core trio repertoire with The Florestan Trio, Stravinsky’s complete music for violin and piano with Thomas Adès, and concertos by Peteris Vasks and Kurt Weill, and by Benjamin Britten.
The Royal Philharmonic Society named Anthony Marwood ‘Instrumentalist of the Year’ in 2006. He is the co-Artistic Director of the Peasmarsh Chamber Music Festival and teaches annually at the Yellow Barn Festival in Vermont. He plays a beautiful 1736 Carlo Bergonzi violin, kindly bought by a syndicate of purchasers.
