A viol player, cellist, lecturer and musicologist, Sam Stalden has been a member of Fretwork since 2015, appearing with the group regularly live and on the radio both in the UK and internationally. He also appears as a continuo player and soloist on viol and cello with a number of early music ensembles. These include the viol consort Chelys, with whom he has recently recorded a CD of music by Dowland with Dame Emma Kirkby - 'A Pleasing Melancholy' - available on BIS Records.

He has a keen interest in the performance of contemporary music on early instruments; with Fretwork in particular, he has performed music by George Benjamin, Michael Nyman, John Taverner, Nico Muhly and has recently recorded The World Encompassed - a new work by Orlando Gough describing Sir Francis Drake's circumnavigation of the globe (available on Signum Records). His new UK/Canada ensemble with baroque violinist Paul Luchkow and harpsichordist/fortepianist Michael Jarvis recently completed their inaugural tour of British Columbia, Canada, culminating in a Main Stage performance for the world-renowned Vancouver Early Music Festival. Their first CD 'Fantasticus' will be released in late 2018.

In addition to his performing work, Sam is Viol Consort Professor at the Royal College of Music in London and has been an associate lecturer at the University of York and a guest lecturer at the Royal Academy of Music. He holds a PhD in the influences of poetry and declamation on the composition and performance of the pièces de viole in late seventeenth- and early eighteenth-century France.
