Andrew Haveron

One of the most sought-after violinists of his generation and a laureate of some of the most prestigious international violin competitions, Andrew Haveron studied in London at the Purcell School and the Royal College of Music. As a soloist, he has collaborated with conductors such as Jirí Belohlávek, Sir Colin Davis, Sir Roger Norrington, David Robertson, Stanislaw Skrowaczewski, and John Wilson, performing a broad range of well-known and less familiar concertos with many of the finest orchestras in the UK. In 1999 he was appointed first violinist of the internationally acclaimed Brodsky Quartet. A busy schedule saw the Quartet perform and broadcast all over the world, amassing a repertoire of almost 300 works, collaborating with outstanding artists, and commissioning many new works. He recorded more than fifteen albums with the Quartet, and also appeared with chamber groups such as the Nash and Hebrides ensembles, Logos Chamber Group, Kathy Selby, and Ensemble Q. In great demand as a leader and orchestral director, he has worked with all the major symphony orchestras in the UK and many further afield. In 2007 he was appointed leader of the BBC Symphony Orchestra. He joined the Philharmonia Orchestra in 2012, has been the leader of The John Wilson Orchestra since its inception, and in 2013 took up his current post of concert master of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra. Recently he appeared with the London Symphony Orchestra under Sir Simon Rattle, and in recitals around Australia with the pianists Anna Goldsworthy, Piers Lane, and Simon Tedeschi. In 2004 he received an honorary Doctorate from the University of Kent for his services to music, and his performance of Walton’s Violin Concerto with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra in 2015 was nominated for a Helpmann Award. Andrew Haveron plays a violin made in 1757 by Giovanni Battista Guadagnini, a generous loan to the Sydney Symphony Orchestra by Vicki Olsson for his use.
