Alex Redington has performed across the UK as a recitalist and concerto soloist

Described as one who plays with “both exuberance and quiet lyrical charm” by Classical Source and as “someone who makes it all look so easy” by The Strad, Alex Redington, the first violinist of the critically acclaimed Doric String Quartet, is now firmly established as one of the leading violinists of his generation.

His passion for chamber music has led to collaborations with Benjamin Grosvenor, Jonathan Biss, Peter Wispleway and Marc Andre Hamelin. He has performed at many of the worlds leading venues including the Wigmore Hall, Amsterdam Concertgebouw, Berlin Konzerthaus, Carnegie hall and the Vienna Konzerthaus, as well as touring extensively through Europe, Japan, Australia and the USA.

Alex plays on a Violin made by Paulo Castello in Genoa 1780 and records for Chandos. He is a professor of Violin and Chamber music at the Royal Academy of Music.
