Elliot Corner


A Foundation Scholar at the Royal College of Music, Elliot has had a passion for music as long as he can remember. He was born in Brighton, UK and continues to be Brighton based. As proof of this, he can be found busking regularly in the Pavilion Gardens, surrounded by confused tourists wondering why this eccentric and tall young musician is playing Bach.

"I am an 18 year old Violist and composer, living in Brighton, UK, looking to share my music with the world.

I also aim to prove that the vastly under-appreciated and under-written-for instrument that is the Viola is actually an instrument that has its own deep, profound character. The beautiful sounds it can make are not well known, and I want people to know that it is worthy of praise. My life's ambition, and indeed my dream, is to one day write in the gaps in the Viola repertoire, and learn to write in all of the old styles. One day, I hope that there will be a 'Tchaikovsky' Viola Concerto, or 'Bach' Viola Suites.

I aim to fill in these gaps, and am just beginning my journey. I hope that this humble page may be of some use to someone in the world, in spreading the sonorous, deep, growling sound that is the Viola; and in giving those who play the Viola out there some new repertoire to get stuck into." -Elliot Corner
