David Alberman, Principal Second Violin

Born in London, David Alberman received his LRAM diploma from the Royal Academy of Music at 16. After playing with the Academy of St Martin in the Fields and the LSO, he became a Principal Second Violin of the Chamber Orchestra of Europe. A long-standing interest in contemporary music led him in 1986 to join the internationally renowned Arditti Quartet, with whom he took part in many world premieres, and made a number of recordings, which won prizes internationally. In 1995, he formed a duo with pianist Rolf Hind.

He continues to enjoy a wide range of music – from chamber music through to symphonic. In addition to playing Principal Second Violin in the London Symphony Orchestra, he has also been guest concertmaster at the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, Bergen Philharmonic, London Philharmonic and the BBC Symphony Orchestra, as well as the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. Meanwhile his chamber music performances have taken him to the Music Academy of the West in Santa Barbara, the Razumovsky Ensemble in London, and the Hebrides Ensemble in Scotland.
