Since winning 1st Prize in the Lionel Tertis International Viola Competition in 2016, Timothy Ridout has gone on to perform widely internationally. Born in London, Timothy studied at the Royal Academy of Music (graduating with the Queen’s Commendation for Excellence) and is currently at the Kronberg Academy with Nobuko Imai.
Winner of the 2018 Opus Klassik Award for Piano Concerto Recording of the Year, German pianist Frank Dupree recently came to international attention as the laureate prize winner of the 2014 Deutscher Musikwettbewerb, captivating the judges with his musical maturity, refined technique and ability to draw a wide spectrum of sound and colour from the keyboard.
'A gorgeous tone, a thoughtful approach to phrasing and an infectious sense of impetuosity.'
