Stephen Bryant was born in Croydon, London and began playing the piano
at the age of 5 and the violin at 6. At 18, he won a joint first study
scholarship to the Royal College of Music studying violin with Professors
Kenneth Piper and Hugh Bean – both pupils of the great English violinist,
Albert Sammons and piano with Professor Angus Morrison.
Whilst there, he won every violin prize open to him and, in addition the medal of The Worshipful Company of Musicians, two Leverhulme Scholarships, the Craxton Trust Award and first prize in the Royal Overseas League Competition.
After further study with Professor David Takeno he was
appointed co-leader of the London Philharmonic Orchestra at the age of 24 – a position he held until taking up his present post of Leader of the BBC Symphony Orchestra in 1992.
