Steve Bingham

" Kaplan Amo gives me the best possible sound on my 200-year-old acoustic violin. They also have a short playing in period, keep their tone well over time, and are well-matched across the entire violin pitch range."

 



ABOUT Steve Bingham


Steve Bingham studied violin at the Royal Academy of Music in London, where he won prizes for orchestral leading and string quartet playing. In 1985, he formed the Bingham String Quartet, an ensemble with an enviable reputation for both classical and contemporary repertoire across the UK.

Steve has appeared as guest leader with many orchestras including the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, English National Ballet and English Sinfonia. He has given solo recitals both in the UK and America and his concerto performances include works by Bach, Vivaldi, Bruch, Prokofiev, Mendelssohn and Sibelius, given in venues as prestigious as St. Johns' Smith Square and the Royal Albert Hall.

Steve's debut solo CD Duplicity was released in November 2005 and was followed by Ascension, Third and in 2014, The Persistence Of Vision, which features the amazing Bach D minor Partita and works by Michael Nyman. In 2021, he is releasing a 10-track covers album Touch and a double album of contemporary classical works, many of which he has commissioned, called Salamander.

Steve plays live with No-Man, the progressive art-rock duo of Tim Bowness and Steve Wilson, and also has an active YouTube channel featuring many weird and wonderful video creations.

Beyond performing on the violin, Steve currently conducts the Ely Sinfonia, Ad Hoc Sinfonia and Norfolk Symphony Orchestra, and makes guest appearances with several other ensembles. He is also a committed teacher, being an ambassador for the European String Teachers Association, and coaching on many chamber music courses as well as giving regular school workshops.
