Manoug Parikian (15 September 1920 – 24 December 1987) was a British concert violinist and violin professor. He was born in Mersin to Armenian parents. He studied in London. Parikian made his solo début in 1947 and led several orchestras – the Liverpool Philharmonic, London’s Philharmonia Orchestra, the Yorkshire Sinfonia from 1976 to 1978 – and was musical director of the Manchester Camerata from 1980 to 1984. He also led the English Opera Group Orchestra between 1949 and 1951, and participated in various Aldeburgh Festival concerts as a chamber musician as well as in opera productions.  He was an admired teacher at the Royal Academy of Music. He also championed contemporary composers, many of whom wrote works for him: examples include Thea Musgrave’s Colloquy (1960), Gordon Crosse’s Violin Concerto No. 2, Alexander Goehr’s Violin Concerto (1961–62) and Hugh Wood’s Violin Concerto. Benjamin Britten also composed for Parikian a cadenza to Mozart’s Adagio for Violin and Orchestra K261 in 1951.
