Last year Timothy Ridout became the first British winner of the prestigious Lionel Tertis International Viola Competition, the latest in a succession of prominent awards that has placed him at the forefront of today’s violists. He is joined by pianist John Reid, a principal with the acclaimed Aurora Orchestra, for a programme that moves from the full-blown Romanticism of Schumann and Brahms to the starker expressiveness of John Hawkins’s Urizen.
