Timothy Ridout

A BBC New Generation Artist and Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellow, Timothy Ridout is a sought-after violist the world over. He was born in London and graduated with the Queen’s Commendation for Excellence from the Royal Academy of Music. He completed his master’s at the Kronberg Academy, Germany, with Nobuko Imai in 2019, and is a member of The Bowers Program of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. During the 2021 – 22 season he appears as soloist with the BBC Symphony Orchestra at the BBC Proms, Orchestre de chambre de Paris, Orchestre philharmonique de Strasbourg, Luzerner Sinfonieorchester, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, and Hallé, and makes his Viennese solo début at the Wiener Konzerthaus with Grazer Philharmonisches Orchester. Highlights of the season also include recitals and chamber concerts at Wigmore Hall, Wiener Musikverein, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, and Auditorio Nacional de Música, in Madrid. Further afield, he embarks on a California tour with Camerata Pacifica, and returns to Japan to perform Bartók’s Viola Concerto at the Hyogo Performing Arts Center.
In much demand as a chamber musician, he has taken part in festivals in Rheingau, Bergen, Rosendal, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Sion, and Lockenhaus, among others across Europe. In recent seasons, he has made his début with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, Symphoniker Hamburg, Orchestre national de Lille, Camerata Salzburg, BBC Philharmonic, and Philharmonia Orchestra, undertaken a residency with Philharmonie Baden-Baden, and performed Walton’s Concerto with the Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich, working with conductors such as Christoph Eschenbach, David Zinman, and Sakari Oramo. His latest album, A Poet’s Love, which he recorded with the pianist Frank Dupree, features selections from Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet and their own transcription of Schumann’s Dichterliebe. Timothy Ridout plays a viola made by Peregrino Micheli di Zanetto c. 1565 – 75, on loan from a generous patron of Beare’s International Violin Society.
