Michael Foyle

Michael Foyle

Michael Foyle (violin) won The Netherlands Violin Competition 2016, giving an acclaimed performance of Szymanowksi’s Concerto No.1 with the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra. In 2017-18 he returns to the Rotterdam Philharmonic and Polish Baltic Philharmonic with Korngold’s Concerto, and makes his Cadogan Hall debut playing Prokofiev’s Concerto No.1 with English Chamber Orchestra. Other London appearances this season include performances of the Beethoven, Dvorak, Elgar and Tchaikovsky concerti.

Born in Ayrshire in 1991, Michael gave his concerto debut in Edinburgh Festival Theatre aged eight. He went on to win the BBC Young Musician of the Year Tabor Award 2008 and the Royal Overseas League String Competition 2013, before studying at the Vienna Konservatorium with Pavel Vernikov and in London with Maureen Smith and Daniel Rowland. Upon graduation from the Royal Academy of Music, he was awarded the Regency Prize for Excellence and the Roth Prize for the highest violin mark of the year. He has premiered solo and chamber works by over 25 living composers.

Michael plays a Gennaro Gagliano violin (1750) on loan and is represented by Interartists Amsterdam. In addition to his solo and chamber performances this season, he is invited as Guest-Leader of BBC Symphony Orchestra and as Violin Professor at Royal Academy of Music.
