British violinist Roberto Ruisi has rapidly emerged as a versatile, charismatic and bold artist.
Recent winner of both the Royal Over-Seas League String Prize and the Swiss Ambassador’s Award, and a recipient of the Tillett Debut Scheme, Roberto is already an established soloist. He will make his full debut recital at Wigmore Hall in 2020 with award-winning pianist and duo partner, Sten Heinoja. They have also been commissioned for an album at the end of 2020.
Recognised as a strong, demonstrative principal player, Roberto has appeared as a guest concertmaster in multiple professional orchestras including L’Orchestre National Bordeaux Aquitaine and the RTÉ Concert Orchestra, all by the age of 19, and is passionate about orchestral repertoire. Roberto also performs regularly amongst smaller-scale ensembles, such as 12 Ensemble and Britten Sinfonia.
Roberto is an avid chamber musician, performing internationally with the Alessio Piano Trio, including concerts in Washington, Beijing and London. He is also regularly invited to play at some of the most prestigious chamber music festivals in the UK.
On completion of his studies at the Royal College of Music, Roberto was awarded the prestigious Tagore Gold Medal. He was also generously loaned a Stradivarius between 2014-2017, and as a Foundation Scholar and subsequently an ABRSM Scholar at RCM, has received tutoring from the likes of Pinchas Zukerman and Maxim Vengerov, as well as performing as a soloist with the RCM Symphony Orchestra.
