About

Polish violinist Maria Włoszczowska is recognised for her versatile musicianship, performing as soloist, director/concertmaster and chamber musician. Maria gave her debut recital at the Wigmore Hall in 2016 with pianist Alasdair Beatson, who has since become a frequent duo partner, and she appeared there last season both in recital and chamber music concerts, as well as featuring in several BBC Radio 3 broadcasts. She performs regularly at international festivals such as Musikdorf Ernen in Switzerland, Lammermuir Festival, IMS Prussia Cove, Festival Resonances in Belgium and Enghien International Musical Encounters as well as a residency at Yellow Barn, Vermont.

Katya Apekisheva attended the Gnessin Music School for exceptionally gifted children, making her stage debut at the age of 12. She continued her studies in Jerusalem at the Rubin Music Academy and later at the Royal College of Music in London. From these auspicious beginnings she went on to be a Prizewinner of the Leeds International Piano competition and has gone on to enjoy a career performing with many of the world’s leading orchestras, including the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the Philharmonia Orchestra, the Halle Orchestra, the Moscow Philharmonic, the Jerusalem Symphony, the English Chamber Orchestra and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, working with renowned conductors such as Sir Simon Rattle, David Shallon, Jan Latham-Koenig and Alexander Lazarev.
