Annette Isserlis Viola

Annette has been one of our viola players since the very beginning.

Annette (or Netty, as she’s commonly known) was one of the founding members of the OAE and has continued to play with us ever since.

She studied at the Royal College of Music, where she now teaches historical performance on baroque and classical viola. Coming from a very musical family, her siblings Rachel and Steven are also professional musicians.

She is the star behind our ‘Tea with Netty’ podcasts, in which she has informal and amusing chats with musicians over a cup of tea (or sometimes something a little stronger).
