The Paganini Duo was established by Mark in 2010. It consists of Mark on guitar and with Andrew Wickens on violin, though other violinists are also sometimes invited to team up with Mark in the duo.
Andrew Wickens has been playing the violin for more years than he cares to admit. At the age of 7 he had lessons with his father and later went on to study at the Royal Academy of Music in London and then to the Conservatory of St. Cecelia in Rome.
He is a long standing member of the Philharmonia Orchestra. As well as taking part in concerts and recordings in London and the UK he has travelled to all parts of the world with the orchestra.
