At our Handel concert we handed over our Kloz 1756 violin to Andrew Taheny. Andrew holds a BMus from the University of Edinburgh and an MMus from the Royal Northern College of Music. He is now freelancing in London whilst on the Southbank Sinfonia Fellowship.
He writes: ‘Since discovering my passion for historically informed performance I have sought every opportunity to develop this side of my playing. I am endlessly fascinated by its theoretical and practical challenges; its sense of liberation and its ability to breathe new life into familiar and neglected repertoire. Alongside my studies I have taken part in baroque summer schools and masterclasses […] and I hope to make baroque music as significant a part of my career as possible. I'm so grateful to have the support of the Cherubim Trust to help me achieve this, as otherwise it wouldn't be possible!’
