Clio Gould (violin)

Clio Gould enjoys variety in her career as a violinist and performs as soloist, chamber musician, director and concertmaster internationally and at home in the UK. She has held major and longstanding positions as Concertmaster of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Principal Violin of the London Sinfonietta and as Artistic Director of Scottish Ensemble, directing from the violin.

Clio has appeared as concerto soloist with most of the UK’s major orchestras covering a wide-ranging repertoire. Known as one of Britain’s foremost interpreters of contemporary violin music, she has been given the opportunity to work with many of today’s leading composers. Highlights include performances at the Royal Festival Hall of Pierre Boulez’s epic work for solo violin and live electronics Anthèmes 2 for the composer’s 85th birthday celebrations. She has also worked closely with Oliver Knussen, giving many performances in Sweden, Japan, Finland and Hungary of the Knussen violin concerto, conducted by the composer. She gave the UK premiere of this work at the Aldeburgh Festival with the BBC Symphony Orchestra.

Clio regularly contributes to film and TV soundtracks at Abbey Road Studios and Air Lyndhurst Stydios, where she frequently leads studio orchestras. She plays with the Colin Currie Group in Europe and Japan.

Clio is honoured to play the Rutson Stradivarius of 1694 which has been generously loaned to her by the Royal Academy of Music. She teaches there, and directs the Sainsbury Royal Academy Soloists. She has been awarded Honorary Membership of the Academy.
