The go-to guide for early music


Maxim Del Mar


British violinist Maxim Del Mar is a graduate of the Royal College of Music, where he studied Baroque violin with Adrian Butterfield. A music graduate from the University of York, where he began to explore historically-informed performance, Maxim has gone on to specialise in this field, performing a wealth of solo, chamber, and orchestral music spanning from Monteverdi to Mendelssohn and beyond on original set-ups. Chamber music forms a large part of Maxim's musical life, and he is an active member of emerging chamber ensembles including Ensemble La Notte, Endelienta Baroque, Eboracum Baroque and Lilium Convallium, with whom he participated in the Brighton Early Music Festival Scheme. He is a regular member of the Hanover Band and the London Handel Orchestra, and has also performed with Florilegium, Instruments of Time & Truth, BBC singers, London Early Opera and Solomon’s Knot, whilst also enjoying London and the wider UK’s bustling early music freelance scene.
