Violinist Michael Foyle Joins Hochschule für Musik und Tanz Köln

The British violinist will hold the Professor of Violin position in addition to his present professorship at London's Royal Academy of Music, where he became the youngest-ever recipient of a professorial post in 2016

 

Foyle previously won the Netherlands Concerto Competition playing Szymanowski’s Violin Concerto No.1 and subsequently received an invitation to perform a solo recital in the Concertgebouw. Since then, he has performed regularly in some of the UK's most prestigious halls and has recorded a disc of music by Debussy, Janacek, and Respighi.

He has appeared as the Guest Concertmaster for the BBC Philharmonic and the Hallé Orchestra — and also performs regularly with his piano trio, Trio Balthasar, alongside pianist Iain Burnside and cellist Tim Hugh.

"Delighted to share the news that from Wintersemester 2021/22 I am taking up a professorship at the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz Köln," wrote Foyle on social media. "Alongside continuing to work with my wonderful students at the Royal Academy of Music, I am thrilled to accept this position in the heart of Europe and am already enjoying meeting the exceptional students and colleagues of this renowned institution."
