Emilia Benjamin (viol)

Emilia Benjamin, tenor viol, studied at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. She spent a year at the Brussels Conservatoire with Wieland Kuijken and is a core member of Sonnerie, playing viol, violin and viola. Emilia discovered her desire to be a professional musician (rather than just a dilettante violinist) when she took up the treble viol while studying History of Art at the University of East Anglia. She went on to study the viol with Sarah Cunningham and Baroque violin with Micaela Comberti in London, before going to Brussels. In addition to her two main instruments, Emilia also plays viola and lirone and now performs frequently on all four instruments. Her musical life has covered a wide range: Rennaissance viol consort music with Phantasm and Concordia, English divisions and French Baroque repertory through to Mozart quartets, Bach concertos and Mendlessohn piano quartets with Sonnerie, Italian opera on the viol and lirone with Glyndebourne, Early Opera Company, Norwegian State Opera and Frankfurt Oper, Baroque orchestral and chamber playing with the Irish Baroque Orchestra, the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra, Florilegium and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment. She has also played at Shakespeare’s Globe for Measure for Measure and Anne Boleyn. Emilia has featured on two Gramophone Award-winning CDs: Biber violin sonatas with Monica Huggett and the Brandenburg Concertos with Trevor Pinnock, in which she played solo viola in Concerto No 6.
