Introducing the performers…
Martyn Jackson (violin)
One of the Adderbury Ensemble’s regular current members, British violinist Martyn Jackson was born in 1988 and has performed as a solo artist and chamber musician throughout the UK, much of Europe and the Middle East. Martyn studied at the Hochschule für Musik “Hanns Eisler”, Berlin with Professor Stephan Picard and is a graduate of the Royal College of Music, where he studied with Professor Itzhak Rashkovsky. He was a selected artist on the Countess of Munster Recital Scheme in 2013 and is a Concordia Foundation Artist.
Martyn made his recital debut at the Southbank Centre’s Purcell Room, as part of the Philharmonia Orchestra Martin Musical Scholarship Fund Prize Winners’ Recital Scheme. He was also invited to perform with principal players from the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra in Milan and Rome. Previous seasons have included performances of the Brahms, Elgar, Prokofiev, Sibelius, Tchaikovsky, Mendelssohn and Stravinsky concertos, and a European tour with cellist Henri Demarquette encompassing venues such as the Philharmonie and Konzerthaus in Berlin and Les Invalides in Paris. As an orchestral musician, Martyn has frequently served as Assistant Concertmaster of the LSO, Philharmonia Orchestra and BBC SSO.
Annie Beilby (viola)
Australian violist Ann Beilby made her solo debut in the Sydney Opera house aged 19. She has since won many awards and prizes, both as a solo and as a chamber musician, including the Schott & Co Publishing Prize at the 2006 Lionel Tertis International Viola Competition, and the Cecil Aronowitz, Lionel Tertis and Lesley Alexander Prizes at the RCM (2009). Annie was also a finalist in the RCM String Player of the Year Award in 2009, and joint winner of the 2007 RCM Autumn Concerto Competition String section.
Having graduated from the Royal College of Music’s MMus programme with Distinction in 2010, Annie now enjoys a rich and varied musical life freelancing with the leading London symphony and chamber orchestras. She is eternally grateful for the support of here mentors Guenter Pichler, Alex Todicescu (Sydney Conservatorium of Music) and Ian Jewel (RCM, London), as well as the Worshipful Company of Musicians in London; the Musicians Benevolent Fund; the Leverhulme Trust; the Richard Carne Trust; the Meyer Foundation; the Escuela Superior de Musica Reina Sofia; the Australian Music Foundation; and the Royal College of Music. She plays on a wonderful modern viola made for her in 2011 by David Milward.
