Artist Description: 

Paul Silverthorne is one of the UK's foremost viola players, holding principal positions in both the London Symphony Orchestra and the London Sinfonietta; he appears regularly as a soloist with these and other major orchestras around the world.

Throughout his career he has worked closely with leading composers, inspiring many of them to write for him and to enlarge 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, Naxos, Chandos, Koch International Classics, Meridian, Toccata Classics and others to much critical acclaim.

He is a professor at the Royal Academy of Music in London, and plays a viola made by the Brothers Amati in 1620 which is loaned to him from the RAM collection.
