Timothy Rundle No. 2 Oboe

Timothy was born in Rugby in 1981.  He studied at the Royal Northern College of music and began a successful freelance career whilst still a student and graduated in 2003.  In 2005 he was appointed co-principal oboe with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and enjoyed six years living in Glasgow before joining the Philharmonia in 2011.

As well as playing with the Philharmonia Timothy has enjoyed playing as a guest with some of the finest orchestras in the world including the London Symphony Orchestra, Chamber Orchestra of Europe and Mahler Chamber Orchestra.  He has also had the opportunity to indulge his passion for performance on original instruments with the Orchestra of the age of Enlightenment and orchestra of the Sixteen.

Timothy lives in Kent with his wife Sarah, a bassoonist, and young son.  He enjoys living in the countryside and finds it the perfect contrast to the exciting and frenetic atmosphere of working in London.
