Finnish violist MAX NYMAN (b. 1993) is currently finishing his Master’s degree at the Sibelius Academy under the tutelage of Atte Kilpeläinen, having previously studied with Helge Valtonen, and at the Mozarteum University in Salzburg with William Coleman. Before his academic studies, Max toured Europe as concertmaster of the West Helsinki Chamber Orchestra and in Scandinavia as principal violist of Orkester Norden. More recently he has had the pleasure of playing with the Helsinki Philharmonic, Finnish RSO, Finnish National Opera and Avanti! Chamber Orchestra.
Max’s interest in early music has taken him to courses in historically-informed performance practice with Reinhard Goebel and Minna Kangas. He has performed with the Finnish Baroque Orchestra and as soloist in Telemann’s double viola concerto.
