Violin – JC Kloz 1756, ‘Keith Dale’ with bows by Eitan Hoffer

The baroque violin forms a significant part of my musical education, and ultimately, my career. I am passionate about historically informed performance, and delight in discovering more about this wonderful area of music making. My ambition is to perform with the top period instrument ensembles in the UK, and work with conductors who specialise in HIP, as well as perform chamber music on these wonderful instruments to discover them in a new and vibrant way.

I would also love to introduce HIP to as wide a span of people as possible, so would love to include the baroque violin in my outreach work. The baroque violin has already brought me much success, and upcoming projects include a solo performance at Buckingham Palace in June.
