Lithuanian-Polish violinist Agata started playing the violin at the age of six and made her solo debut four years later. A prize winner of ten national and international youth competitions Agata moved to England to study at the Yehudi Menuhin School in 2003. Since then she has been performing solo and chamber music regularly across the UK and in Europe. In 2009 she performed at the Queen Elizabeth Hall as part of the LPO’s “Between two worlds: Alfred Schnittke” festival with Vladimir Jurowski conducting. In 2012 as a RCM Concerto Competition winner, she performed Berg’s violin concerto with the RCM Symphony Orchestra, Edward Gardner conducting.

 

Agata took up the baroque violin at the start of her Masters studies and has since been exploring historical repertoire on it, focussing mainly on the classical and early romantic eras.

 

Since summer 2013 Agata has been a member of the Kremerata Baltica Chamber Orchestra, lead by Gidon Kremer, with which she has since toured Europe, the Middle East, the Far East, North and South Americas. In July 2014 she completed her Masters Degree (studying with Itzhak Rashkovsky and Lucy Russell) at the RCM with Distinction and two special prizes - the Jacqueline Ward Memorial Prize and the Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Rosebowl for outstanding studentship which she received from HRH Prince Charles at an annual award ceremony at the RCM.
