Away from orchestra playing, she has won a Norwegian Grammy, Spellemannprisen for chamber music recordings with the Vertavo String Quartet, and first prize winner of the Melbourne international chamber music competition. She is a professor of violin at the Norwegian Academy of Music.

She has collaborated for many years with Anna, enjoying a varied programme of duo to larger ensemble repertoire. Other recent UK-based chamber music has been with The Nash Ensemble and folk artist Kathryn Tickell OBE and her group ‘The side’.

Louisa is a Professor 2 of orchestral cello studies at the Norwegian Music Academy and a tutor of cello at Barratt Due Institute in Oslo. She was awarded ‘Associate of the Royal Academy of Music’ in London, ARAM in 2011.

Ellie started playing the violin at the age of two and a half and it was soon to become her life. She was a music scholar at St Alban’s High School for girls, while studying at the Junior Royal Academy of Music on a Saturday, before being awarded a foundation scholarship to study at the Royal College of Music under Yossi Zivoni, from where she gradated in 2005 with First Class Honours.

As a soloist, she has performed recitals in venues across the UK and concertos with orchestras including the Amadeus Orchestra, Hertfordshire Philharmonic, JRAM Symphony Orchestra and the National Children’s Chamber Orchestra.

She was appointed leader of the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain, after having been a member for five years, and during her undergraduate at the RCM led many of the orchestras and ensembles. She is now a freelance violinist in London, playing with many of the major symphony and chamber orchestras including the LSO, LCO, Philharmonia and CBSO in the UK and abroad. She is also an active chamber musician.

Philip Dukes


Philip is recognised as one of the world’s leading viola players and is in demand worldwide as a director/conductor/soloist. In a career that has spanned over 30 years he is an accomplished performer, be it as a concerto soloist, a recitalist or chamber musician. He will be a familiar face to Rosehill audiences, having performed in Anna Tilbrook's Summer Concert in both 2018 and 2019.

He made his solo recital debut at London’s Southbank Centre in 1991 and was hailed by the London Times as “Great Britain’s most outstanding solo viola player”, with The Strad magazine describing it as “world class”. As a winner of the European Rising Stars Award in 1997 he made his European recital debuts in Vienna, Stockholm, Frankfurt, Paris and Amsterdam in the same year, all to critical acclaim. He has appeared with all the UK major orchestras as a concerto soloist and as a soloist at the BBC Proms on five separate occasions.
