Faculty of Music


A true 21st-century musician, viola and viola d’amore player Clifton Harrison has forged a performing and recording career spanning a huge range of genres and embracing the creative potential of in-depth research. He studied at the Juilliard School and Royal Academy of Music and is the viola player in the acclaimed Kreutzer Quartet. He maintains an active freelance career working with most of the London orchestras, contemporary music groups, and early music ensembles. Alongside his extensive classical recording catalogue, he can be heard on hundreds of television, film and album soundtracks. Clifton is in demand giving lectures and masterclasses at some of the world’s finest institutions. He is dedicated to unlocking personal responses and interpretation through performance-practice techniques and self-exploration. He is a champion of works by historically underrepresented composers - works by these composers are especially welcomed.
