David Routledge grew up in East Yorkshire before moving to Manchester to study with Lydia Mordkovitch at the Royal Northern College of Music.

Having chosen the diversity of a freelance career, he now juggles his commitments between a number of ensembles. As a former member of the European Union Chamber Orchestra David has performed all around the world, frequently as a soloist.

He is currently a member and occasional leader of Manchester Camerata, the Northern Chamber Orchestra and Sinfonia Viva.

As the leader of the highly acclaimed contemporary music ensemble, Psappha, David has made numerous broadcasts in this country and abroad as both chamber musician and soloist as well as several recordings.

His interest in the music of Astor Piazzolla led him to form Trio Zambra which in addition to the tangos plays a widely varied repertoire and more recently Tango 5, a group dedicated to the tango quintet repertoire

David can often be seen in the violin sections of the northwests symphony orchestras frequently playing as a guest principal.

He lives in Glossop with his young family and follows the variable fortunes of Newcastle United and Blyth Spartans.
