Royal Northern Sinfonia - Tijmen Huisingh

Sub-Principal, 1st Violin

Tijmen-Husingh

Dutch violinist Tijmen is a tempestuous musician who wholeheartedly delves into every piece and genre he encounters: from 16th century Renaissance Baroque to pop/rock music of today. He finds great inspiration and guiding in working with Gordan Nikolic and the philosophy and recordings of Sergiu Celibidache.  He is much in demand as a chamber musician and guest-concertmaster/director with ensembles such as Concertgebouw Chamber Orchestra, English Symphony Orchestra, Kristjan Järvi’s Absolute Ensemble, Combattimento and the Netherlands Symphony Orchestra.

He was a laureate in numerous violin competitions in the Netherlands and at the International Chamber Music Competition 2007 “Rovere d’Oro” in Italy.

Early in 2017 he became a member of the Royal Northern Sinfonia. At the end of that same year he joined the prestigious Edinburgh Quartet as their new first violinist.

He is a founding member of the Amsterdam Chamber Soloists, a piano quartet of four soul-mates. They perform in the major concert halls in the Netherlands and regularly for Dutch radio4.

Tijmen studied the violin at the Amsterdam Conservatory with Jan Repko, Lex Korff de Gidts and Ilya Grubert and finished his studies in 2007 at the Scuola di Musica di Fiesole under the guidance of Pavel Vernikov and Oleksandr Semchuk in the ‘International Competition Preparation Course’.
