Paul Silverthorne (viola)

Paul Silverthorne is one of the UK’s foremost string players. Alongside his many solo engagements, he holds the principal viola positions in both the London Symphony Orchestra and the London Sinfonietta.

He is particularly renowned for his interpretation of new music and his commitment to this field has led to a close relationship with leading composers of our time, many of whom have been inspired to write for him, enlarging a repertoire that already encompasses all the major viola works as well as his own transcriptions and lesser known pieces from all periods.

He has recorded a wide range of repertoire for EMI, Black Box, Koch International Classics, Naxos, Chandos, ASV, Meridian, Albany and others to much critical acclaim.

He is a professor at the Royal Academy of Music in London, and gives many masterclasses around the world. He plays a viola made by the Brothers Amati in 1620 and loaned to him from the collection at the Royal Academy of Music.
