Tamsin Waley-Cohen (violin)

Described by The Times as a violinist 'who held us rapt in daring and undaunted performances' and by The Guardian as a performer of 'fearless intensity', Tamsin Waley-Cohen enjoys an adventurous and varied career. In addition to concerts with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC Concert Orchestra, and others, she has been associate artist with Orchestra of the Swan, and works with conductors including Andrew Litton, Jose Serebrier and Tamas Vasary. Performances have taken her across Europe and to the USA and NZ, playing venues such as the Barbican, Wigmore Hall, Symphony Hall Birmingham, Bridgewater Hall, Manchester and the Great Hall, Liszt Academy. She has been artist in residence at festivals including Frome and Roman River.

She enjoys a duo partnership with Huw Watkins, whose Concertino she premiered, and together they have recorded for Champs Hill and Signum Records. She has also premiered works, many written for her, by composers including Joseph Phibbs, Richard Causton, and Torsten Rasch. Her love of chamber music led her to start the Honeymead Festival, now in its 8th year. She is the violinist of the acclaimed London Bridge Ensemble, with whom she performs regularly. Tamsin is also Artistic Director of the Sunday Series at London’s Tricycle Theatre, for which she was named one of Evening Standard's 1000 most influential Londoners.

Her teachers included Ruggiero Ricci, Andras Keller, and Schmuel Ashkenasi, and she studied with Itzhak Rashkovsky at the Royal College of Music, where she won all available prizes.

Since 2007 she has played the 1721 ex-Fenyves Stradivarius violin.
