At My Classical Notes, we have usually focused on amazing artists and their music, concerts, and recordings. From time to time, however, we also talk with you about performers who are less well known, yet in my view could well be the musicians of the future.
Today I introduce you to violinist Esther Abrami, and here are some facts about her background:
Born in France in 1996, Esther graduated from the Aix-en- Provence Conservatoire at the age of 13. She continued her studies at Chetham’s School of Music in Manchester where she studied with Jan Repko. In 2015, Esther began her undergraduate degree at the Royal College of Music in London, studying with Leonid Kerbel.
Esther recently took part in masterclasses with musicians such as Shmuel Ashkenasi, Lewis Kaplan and Charlie Siem.
She gave a recital at the British Embassy in Paris, at the annual Rotary charity concert and was awarded the first price at the Vatelot Rampal violin competition as well as receiving the Honorable mention at the Rising stars Grandprix competition in Germany.
As a chamber musician Esther is part of a quartet that has been invited to the Wigmore Hall Learning National Young String Quartet Weekend.
Ms. Abrami was awarded the third prize in the International Music Competition in Salzburg, Austria.
