Reinoud pursues an exciting portfolio of projects in his music career. He studied with Louise Hopkins at the Yehudi Menuhin School before graduating with First Class Honours from the Guildhall School of Music & Drama (2007), where he also completed a Masters (2009).


While still at the Menuhin School, Reinoud was selected to perform a C.P.E Bach concerto with orchestra at the Menuhin Festival in Gstaad. As a student at Guildhall, he won the Guilhermina Suggia Award, the Flame Competition in Paris and became a runner-up in the final of the Royal Overseas League competition. Reinoud is in demand as a soloist throughout the UK, Europe and further afield. Recent performance highlights include recitals in the Villa Borghese, Rome and for the diplomatic community in Doha, Qatar as well as other concertos (Elgar, Dvorak) with London-based orchestras (Jupiter Chamber Orchestra, Hounslow Symphony Orchestra, Abbots Langley Orchestra). Reinoud has performed from the solo repertoire in the Wigmore Hall, Bridgewater Hall, Dorking Halls and in Schloss Mirabel, Salzburg. Since 2014 he has performed unaccompanied Bach in the Concertgebouw, Amsterdam, the National Concert Hall, Dublin and in the Roundhouse, London.

Reinoud has extensive experience as a chamber musician and is a member of several acclaimed ensembles (Brodowski Quartet, Cellophony cello octet and – more recently – temporary member of Caveleri Quartet and Benyounes Quartet). At the Guildhall he was awarded a Junior Fellowship in Chamber Music. In chamber competition he has won the Royal Overseas League and Tunnell Trust. In 2011 he was selected as Park Lane Group Young Artist. As a chamber musician, Reinoud has performed in important European ensemble venues such as the Wigmore Hall, Barbican, Queen Elizabeth Hall and the Purcell Room. He has made numerous chamber recordings to critical acclaim (Brodowski Quartet on Toccata Classics and Cellophony on Edition Records). As a chamber musician Reinoud studied under Rainer Schmidt (Hagen Quartet), Gunther Pichler (Alban Berg Quartet), Bernard Greenhouse and Alasdair Tait amongst others. As an orchestral player Reinoud works regularly with the Academy of St. Martin in the fields and is Associate Principal of the Aurora Chamber Orchestra.

In 2012 Reinoud inaugurated the Ashdown Music Festival, an annual classical music event that brings together celebrated international performers and musicians from his boyhood home county West Sussex. As Festival Director Reinoud programs ambitious projects, such as the world premiere of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons arranged for eight cellos and solo violin (2013) and British tenor Mark Padmore performing Vaughan Williams (2015). Reinoud has been Music Director of the Sainte Mere Festival in France since 2011.

Reinoud pursues a number of unique projects outside the classical music scene. He performs, tours and composes with singer-songwriter Keaton Henson. In 2014 Keaton released a critically acclaimed album, Romantic Works, co-written by and featuring Reinoud. Reinoud and Keaton have composed the music for the ballet Young Men for the internationally-recognised BalletBoyz , an all-male ballet ensemble which was premiered in Sadler’s Wells. He has (summer 2016) recorded the Solo Cello parts with the BBC Concert Orchestra for the BalletBoyz on screen version of Young men. Reinoud finds time to play on diverse recordings as a session musician. He is also increasingly requested to “fix” musicians for musical events. He is currently the musical director for the Ballet Boyz.
