He has been principal viola of The English Concert since 2006 and tours extensively with them throughout Europe, East Asia and North America. In addition to his work with The English Concert, Alfonso is much in demand with other European ensembles, frequently appearing as a soloist or guest principal.
Alfonso appears on numerous recordings, many of them award-winning; his recording of Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No 6 with the Dunedin Consort was nominated for a Gramophone award and was Classic FM album of the week.
Chamber music remains an important part of his life and often collaborates with Trevor Pinnock, Rachel Podger and many other fine musicians.
Alfonso plays on a fine English viola by Edward Lewis (1687).
