Clarinettist JOSEPH SHINER regularly appears at venues and festivals across Europe, with engagements at Wigmore Hall, Kings Place, Snape Maltings, the Barbican Centre and KKL Luzern. His awards include the Hattori Foundation Senior Award, the Philip and Dorothy Green Award, and the Worshipful Company of Musicians’ Prince’s Prize. A selected artist for Making Music and the City Music Foundation, he has also been featured as BBC Music Magazine’s ‘Rising Star’.
Joseph has enjoyed collaborations with Maiastra, the Allegri and Endellion quartets, and with pianists James Baillieu, Christopher Glynn and Sholto Kynoch. In 2019, Joseph released his first solo recording on Orchid Classics, surveying Brahms’ clarinet chamber music with Somi Kim and Yoanna Prodanova. The disc was a Classic FM ‘Album of the Week’, and hailed by Gramophone for its ‘stormy grandiloquence’ and ‘twilit poetry’. Joseph is also a founding member of the award-winning ‘Magnard Ensemble’. Orchestral credits include performances with the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House and Aurora Orchestra.
Joseph studied at Cambridge University and the Royal Academy of Music, and his teachers have included Angela Malsbury, Mark van de Wiel, Patrick Messina, Christopher Richards, and Andrew Marriner.
