Emil began playing the violin at an early age after his father Roger Huckle, founder and director of  the Bristol Ensemble, introduced him to the instrument.


Early achievements include winning both the Bristol Rotary and Bath Young Musician of the Year competitions as well as reaching the semi-finals of the BBC Young Musician of the Year at the age of 15.

He gained a Bachelor degree with first class honours from the Royal Academy of Music, London, where he studied with professors Remus Azoitie and Hu Kun.


At RAM, he won the Mica Comberti Prize for his rendition of solo Bach and was selected to play in masterclasses for prominent artists including Maxim Vengerov, James Ehnes and Tasmin Little.

He continued his studies in Oslo at the Barratt Due Institute of Music. In 2014, during his final year of study, Emil successfully auditioned to join the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra as a permanent member, a position he currently holds.

He is an active soloist appearing regularly with the Bristol Ensemble among others.
