May Robertson - fidel, voice

Alongside Joglaresa, May Robertson works with ensembles including International Baroque Players, Orchestra of St Paul's, and Charivari Agreable Simfonie. With her group Bahar, specializing in some of the wilder seventeenth-century violin sonatas, she has performed at the Royal Greenwich International Early Music Festival, and was a prizewinner at the Trinity Laban Early Music Competition. She also leads the Keats Quartet, which performs around the UK on modern and historical instruments. May has given chamber performances on BBC Radio 3's 'In Tune' and on Dutch television. Recordings include Joglaresa's 'Nuns and Roses', the Amadè Players' CD of newly-discovered Vivaldi violin sonatas, and CDs by Caius College Choir (mezzo soloist).

May studies the baroque violin with Walter Reiter at the Royal Conservatoire of The Hague. She holds an MMus with Distinction in modern violin from Trinity Laban Conservatoire in London, as well as a degree in English Literature from Cambridge University, where she held an instrumental award and developed research interests in medieval studies.
