Since studying at Cambridge University and the Royal Academy of Music with John White, Martin Outram has enjoyed a wide-ranging career as quartet player, soloist and teacher. In addition to his busy career with the award-winning Maggini Quartet, he appears frequently as a soloist. He is also principal viola with the Britten Sinfonia and Soloists Ensemble. He made his Royal Festival Hall solo début in 1992 in a performance of Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante with the London Mozart Players and his solo appearances have included concertos in London, Liverpool and major festivals throughout Britain. Having given the broadcast première of Sir Peter Maxwell Davies’s Strathclyde Concerto No. 5 in 1995, he gave the first concert performance of Britten’s Portrait No. 2 at St John’s, Smith Square, London, a year later and went on to tour the work in Russia. Other performances have included Maconchy’s Romanza and the Walton and Larsson concertos. He was the soloist in the first European performance for 75 years of York Bowen’s Viola Concerto, and his solo performances with the Britten Sinfonia have included Britten’s Lachrymae. His recent recording with Julian Rolton for Naxos of all the music for viola and piano by Bax received wide critical acclaim, including a five-star review in the BBC Music Magazine. He is a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Music, where he has been a professor since 1984, and is also an Honorary Fellow of Canterbury Christ Church University and Brunel University. Martin Outram plays on a very fine viola made by Henricus Catenar in Turin in 1680.
