Who are Sinfonia Viva?

Who is Alasdair Malloy?

Alasdair Malloy considers himself very fortunate to have a richly varied and diverse musical life. Trained as a percussionist at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, he has now been Principal Percussion with the BBC Concert Orchestra for over twenty years and during this time has been regularly in demand as a guest player for sessions and concerts and for film and television recordings. His BBC Proms solo debut was in 1998 and he has made a number of subsequent appearances at this and other notable music festivals.

The combination of his outgoing personality, his enthusiasm for all sorts of music and his soft Scottish accent has resulted in Alasdair becoming a very popular presenter of concerts and on television and radio. From his solo percussion show for children, Rustle Up a Rhythm, and the Beanbag Proms, devised for babies and toddlers using a mini-orchestra of 12 players, to concerts with full symphony orchestra, Alasdair has introduced hundreds of thousands of people to music in his very individual way, and is renowned for his highly original programmes which he devises and presents with orchestras all over the world.
