Rosemary Hinton

Rosemary Hinton started the violin at the age of six due to her interest in continuing in her grandfather’s footsteps as a violinist. She quickly began to learn the Suzuki method with Jennifer Gray and then Roger Owen in Ipswich also attending weekly group sessions.

Alongside this, Rosemary was a member of the Suffolk county music service and led the South Suffolk String Ensemble and Suffolk Young Strings, going on to be a member of the South Suffolk and Suffolk Youth Orchestras with which she toured Spain in 2007.

At the age of eleven, Rosemary joined the Guildhall School of Music and Drama junior department where she studied violin with Felicity Lipman and piano with Sanae Nakajima for five years.

At Junior Guildhall, Rosemary was a member of the Junior Guildhall String Ensemble and the Junior Guildhall Symphony Orchestra, both of which she led in 2008–2009 as well as taking an active part in chamber music.

In addition, Rosemary was a member of the National Children’s Orchestra from 2003–2007 and the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain from 2007–2011, with whom she played in venues such as Birmingham Symphony Hall, Leeds Town Hall, Barbican Hall and The Roundhouse. She held the position of Co-Leader for two years as well as leading a performance at the Royal Albert Hall in the BBC Proms in 2010.

Rosemary was also a member of Aldeburgh Young Musicians from 2007–2010, which enabled her to gain experience in playing many different musical styles and genres.

Rosemary studied at Chetham’s School of Music from 2009–2011 and studied violin with Benedict Holland and piano with Jonathan Middleton. With the Symphony Orchestra — which she led in performances in February and July 2011 — she performed at the Bridgewater Hall, the Royal Northern College of Music and the Royal Festival Hall. Also, her string quartet performed repertoire including Haydn, Brahms and Schnittke, and performed at the Wigmore Hall in April 2011.

She is currently studying at the Royal Academy of Music, London under Tomotada Soh and hopes to complete her B.Mus. performance in 2015.

Rosemary would like to thank Woodbridge violins, the Benslow Trust and especially the Hon. Gill Ganzoni for their continued support and generosity throughout her musical life.

Philip Howard

Philip Howard was born in 1976. Initially self-taught, he was a student of Alexander Abercrombie between the ages of 10 and 18, later going on to study composition and piano at the Royal Academy of Music, where his teachers were Michael Finnissy and Graeme Humphrey.

Philip won first prize at the International Gaudeamus Interpreters' Competition 2003 held in Rotterdam, becoming the first British winner since 1968. At the age of 15 he won joint first prize in the first BBC Young Musician of the Year Composer Award.

Among other performances, Philip has given solo recitals in London at the Purcell Room and in the BMIC Cutting Edge series at The Warehouse, as well as in the Ultima festival in Oslo, Gaudeamus Music Week in Amsterdam, and the "Berlin Piano Days" (Berliner Klaviertage).

He has appeared on a number of CDs including his own solo piano album "Decoding Skin", which was released in 2004 and which features works by Iannis Xenakis, Morton Feldman and Michael Finnissy alongside pieces by young British composers Paul Newland, Max Wilson and Paul Whitty.
