Timothy Ridout has recently been announced as 1 of 4 recipients of a prestigious 2020 £20,000 Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship.

The Borletti-Buitoni Trust helps outstanding young musicians to develop and sustain international careers with awards that fund tailor-made projects. 

Winners receive a high profile on the BBT website, with audio and video material included where appropriate, and via its news and e-newsletters. 

All winners are given a budget and they are invited to suggest how they want to spend the money. There are no set criteria: winners are encouraged to be creative and to use their awards in a way that will help to establish and build their careers.

BBT Fellowships are usually awarded to artists or ensembles who are at an earlier stage of their careers and the Trust hopes their BBT budget will help develop their future potential.

In response to the news, Tim commented "Thank you so much...I can’t wait to start work on my fellowship projects!"
