Anthony Marwood (violin)

Anthony Marwood enjoys a multi-faceted international career as soloist, director and chamber musician. The youngest of four siblings, he enjoyed music and drama equally as a child, but the connection to the violin proved strongest; he studied with Emanuel Hurwitz at the Royal Academy of Music, David Takeno at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and took lessons with Sándor Végh at the International Musicians Seminar at Prussia Cove, Cornwall.

A natural collaborator, Anthony has created projects with musicians from different genres, actors and dancers, most notably when he acted the title role of Stravinsky’s A Soldier’s Tale on two national tours with the Academy of St Martin in the Fields. He is Principal Artistic Partner of Les Violons du Roy in Québec and, for the 2016/17 season, Artist in Residence at the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra. His many solo appearances around the world include those with the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, the Boston Symphony, St Louis Symphony, LA Philharmonic, Australian Chamber and Sydney Symphony orchestras, the Mariinsky and Musica Viva Chamber orchestras in Russia, Tapiola Sinfonietta in Finland, Amsterdam Sinfonietta, Aurora Orchestra, the BBC orchestras and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra. He was Artistic Director of the Irish Chamber Orchestra for five years.

He enjoys playing a very broad repertoire, and champions new works written for him by Thomas Adès, Sally Beamish, Steve Mackey, Samuel Adams and Pēteris Vasks. Anthony was honoured with the Instrumentalist Award from the Royal Philharmonic Society in 2006. He is Artistic Director of the Peasmarsh Chamber Music Festival in East Sussex, together with Richard Lester from the former Florestan Trio, a group which enjoyed a flourishing recording and performing career until it disbanded in 2012.

Anthony plays on a 1736 Carlo Bergonzi, bought by a syndicate of purchasers. His hands were featured in sculptress Nicole Farhi’s 2016 exhibition in London. Anthony lives in an isolated cottage near Rye, Sussex, and wishes it were possible to have a dog. On the plus side, he is lucky to have wonderful friends around the world with whom he stays on his travels, especially in Vermont, Melbourne and Sydney. He draws inspiration from Cape Town, where he tries to spend at least a month every year. Having initially received the friendliest ever rejection letter from the founder of Hyperion Records, Ted Perry, he has gone on to make numerous recordings for the company, both as soloist and chamber musician.
