Lot Title

A Fine English Viola by John Frederick Lott II, London circa 1830


Property of the late Eileen Engelbrecht. The previous owner of this violin Eileen Engelbrecht (1945 - 2013) was a distinguished free-lance musician based in London but also travelling world-wide. She was a founder member of the London Sinfonietta and was much in demand as a soloist and ensemble player. Eileen deputised for her teacher Fred Riddle at the Royal College of Music (where she also taught Junior Exhibitioners for 15 years) and in the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra where she was the second female player permitted. She was the first to be offered a principal-ship but declined due to other commitments. Eileen was a Gold Medallist at the Royal college of Music and joint winner of the 1972 BBC Viola Competition, in which she played this very fine Lott viola.
