Violinist (with a passion for period performance), violist, accompanist and choral singer based in London and York.
Great musician to work with, friendly and got on very well with my regular players. I hope to work with him again.
Maxim was delightful and fitted in very well with the other singers.
Maxim began his musical training in 2004 through choral singing, as he became a chorister in Westminster Abbey. Here he spent 5 years, making numerous recordings, live performances on BBC Radio 3, as well as performing in Sydney Opera House in 2007. He spent the last year as Head Chorister before obtaining a Music Scholarship at The King’s School, Canterbury in 2009, where the focus turned to violin. As well as playing in all the school ensembles, leading the school’s Symphony Orchestra in his final year, Maxim has played with the London School’s Symphony Orchestra, later going on to spend six years with the National Youth String Orchestra, with which he has played in many leading concert halls including St John’s Smith Square with Sir Neville Marriner, St James’ Piccadilly, King’s Place London, and the Sage, Gateshead. In the summer of 2015, he toured with them around Denmark, performing in the Schubertiaden and Vendyssel Festivals as well as other concert halls, under the direction of Damian Iorio. Maxim is currently a third-year music student at the University of York, and is hugely enjoying the vast range of string opportunities there, leading the Symphony and Chamber Orchestras, and playing prominent roles in the University Sinfonietta and Baroque Ensemble, whilst also having played in productions of Handel’s Acis and Galatea, Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas, Mozart’s The Magic Flute and Cosi Fan Tutte. He plays 2nd violin with the Eboracum String Quartet, alongside Angelika-Rose Stangl, Jess Douglas and Miriam Nohl, having performed Schubert’s “Death and the Maiden” quartet and Schubert's String Quintet in C, and most recently leading the quartet for Beethoven's Quartet in E minor Op. 59 No. 2 "Razumovsky". He has recently developed a special interest in historical performance, and will be undertaking a performance masters in Historical violin at the Royal College of Music with Adrian Butterfield in September.
