Huw has been playing the violin with us since 2014. He has been a Leader since 2020.

Huw Daniel was a pupil at Ysgol Gyfun Ystalyfera, South Wales, studied music at Robinson College, Cambridge, and baroque violin at the Royal Academy of Music with Simon Standage. Huw plays a violin by Jacob Stainer 1665, and also plays the viola d’amore.

In 2017 Huw stepped in at the last minute as leader and soloist for our UK tour of the Brandenburg concertos and later that year appeared on stage in Cavalli’s Hipermestra at Glyndebourne.
