Rachel StroudViolin

Spot on: playing string quartets, studying old scores and jogging.

Rachel Stroud is a baroque violinist and musicologist. She recently completed her PhD in Music at King's College, University of Cambridge, where she investigated issues of notation and performance in Beethoven's late string quartets.

After graduating with a first class degree from Cambridge in 2010, Rachel toured with the European Union Baroque Orchestra for a year before studying historical performance practice at the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague with Walter Reiter and Kati Debretzeni.

Today she works as a freelance violinist alongside her academic activities and performs all over the world, from Latvia to Argentina. Rachel represents the younger generation of baroque performers on the Council of the Academy of Ancient Music and plays a baroque violin by Jonathan Woolston, on loan from Nigel Brown and the Stradivari Trust.
