Emil Huckle-Kleve - Violin

Emil Huckle-Kleve is currently studying at the Barratt Due Institute of Music in Oslo, Norway, where he has lessons with the institute’s director Stephan Barratt-Due. Before this, he gained his degree at the Royal Academy of Music, London, where he studied with professors Remus Azoitie and Hu Kun. At RAM, he won the Mica Comberti prize for solo Bach and was a finalist in their concerto competition. He was also selected to play in master classes to such prominent artists and teachers as Maxim Vengerov, James Ehnes, Tasmin Little, Alexander Markov, Alexander Pavlovich, Thomas Brandis, Natalia Lomeiko and Mayumi Fujikawa.

Emil began playing the violin at the age of four after his father Roger Huckle (founder and director of the Bristol Ensemble) introduced him to the instrument. Roger subsequently trained Emil to a high level. Some early achievements include winning both Bristol Rotary Young Musician of the Year and Bath Young Musician of the Year in 2005 as well as reaching the semi-final of the strings in the BBC Young Musician of the Year in the same year. He also took part in the BBC competition 'Classical Star' where he reached the last eighteen instrumentalists.

Emil appears regularly as soloist with Bristol Ensemble, Stroud Symphony Orchestra, Bristol Metropolitan Orchestra and Capriol Chamber Orchestra, performing a varied repertoire of concertos and other works. He has also played the complete Bach solo sonatas and partitas in the Frome Festival. Recently Emil formed Duo Mira with Olga Jørgensen, piano, and they have performed several concerts in Norway and England, most notably at the Munch Museum in Oslo.
