Aden recently led 2nd Violins in the Reid Consort's performance of Handel's Messiah in the Reid Concert Hall, University of Edinburgh, which I conducted. In addition to being a talented violinist with great enthusiasm in his playing style, he is highly professional in his approach to rehearsal providing welcome feedback, responding well to specific instructions and remaining calm and cheery when things didn't always go to plan: skills clearly developed from years of hard work and experience. Aden is a pleasure to work with and I endorse him wholeheartedly to anyone seeking a strong violinist.
