Don’t miss this rare opportunity to hear one of the world’s leading virtuoso viola players. Ukrainian born Andriy, principal viola of the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, comes to Omnibus to perform a programme of some his instrument’s masterpieces.
Born in Krementz, Ukraine, in 1971, Andriy Viytovych started to play the violin at the age of seven. He studied in a specialist music school in Lviv and later at the Lviv Conservatory under Professor Shutko. In 1991 he won a scholarship to study at the Menuhin Academy in Gstaad, Switzerland, where he was taught by Professors Alberto Lysy and Johannes Eskaer. In 1996 Andriy joined the London Symphony Orchestra as co-principal viola and in 2000 became a principal viola with the Royal Opera House orchestra in Covent Garden. Andriy Viytovych is also a very committed chamber musician. He has worked with Yehudi Menuhin, Howard Shelley, LSO Chamber Players, International Menuhin Music Academy, Covent Garden Soloists and European Camerata.
