Paul Silverthorne has been principal violist of the London Symphony Orchestra since 1991 and the London Sinfonietta since 1988. He appears regularly as a soloist with these and other major orchestras around the world and with conductors Colin Davis, John Eliot Gardiner, Oliver Knussen, Simon Rattle, John Adams, Kent Nagano and André Previn, among others. Recent solo engagements have taken him to the United States (performing Kenneth Fuchs’s concerto) and the Far East. The Times of London has described him as “a virtuoso in sensitivity and technique.” Silverthorne is renowned for his interpretation of new music, and many leading composers have been inspired to write for him. His acclaimed recordings cover a wide range of repertoire and appear on Chandos, EMI, Naxos, Toccata Classics and other labels. Silverthorne is a professor at the Royal Academy of Music; he performs on an Amati viola of 1620 from the Academy’s collection.
