Timo-Veikko “Tipi” Valve is one of the most versatile musicians of his generation performing as a soloist, chamber musician and orchestral leader on both modern and period instruments. In 2006, Valve was appointed Principal Cello of the Australian Chamber Orchestra with whom he frequently appears as a soloist.
Tipi works closely with composers of our time and has premiered a handful of new cello concertos. Valve is a founding member of Jousia Ensemble and Jousia Quartet. Tipi plays a Brothers Amati cello from 1616, kindly on loan from the ACO Instrument Fund.
