Michael Foyle won The Netherlands Violin Competition 2016. His acclaimed performance of Szymanowski’s Violin Concerto No.1 with the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra led to an immediate invitation to give his debut recital at The Concertgebouw, Amsterdam. During 2017-18, he performs the concerti of Beethoven, Brahms, Dvorak, Elgar, Korngold, Lalo, Mendelssohn, Prokofiev and Tchaikovsky. In addition to his solo and chamber performances, Michael is engaged this season as Guest-Concertmaster of BBC Symphony Orchestra and Halle Orchestra. Born in Ayrshire in 1991, Michael gave his concerto debut in Edinburgh Festival Theatre aged eight.
