Tim Hansson Meng

Classical Viola

Tim Hansson Meng is a Swedish viola player who is being supported in his fourth year Bachelor of Music course at the the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London.

 

Tim plays in the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, the Helsinki Philharmonic and the Finnish Radio Orchestra. He has performed under the direction of Sir Simon Rattle, Esa-Pekka Salonen, Andrew Manze and Oliver Knussen among others. He has frequently appeared as principal violist with the Sibelius Academy Symphony Orchestra. He regurarly tours throughout China as a soloist and chamber musician.

 

“Music is one of the most important things in my life. Solo playing, chamber and
orchestral music, composition and teaching, are all aspects that I enjoy equally and I would not want to leave out any of these during my studies and future career. My hope is to work as a principal violist in an orchestra after finishing my studies.

 

At the Guildhall School, I wish to share my music and to play other composers’ music as well. After studying in both Stockholm and Helsinki, I am very much looking forward to move outside Scandinavia. To study in such a cultural metropolis as London will be an invaluable experience for me.” Tim Hansson Meng
