Tim Blomfield

As a natural extension of being an historically-informed performing cellist, Tim is Australia’s pre-eminent bass violinist, performing regularly on the basse de violon in concerts and recordings since 1997. His fascination with baroque cello and historically-informed performance and repertoire from the baroque and classical eras began in 1984, as a recent graduate of the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. Tim explored this area of interest further with Jaap ter Linden at the Royal Conservatorium, The Hague. Tim enjoys producing modern urtext editions of unedited 17th and 18th century scores. He also performs with Cellissimo – his HIP cello duo with cellist Belinda Manwaring. In 2016, they made their Paris debut at L’Oratoire du Louvre.
