About Me

Bio

Music is my biggest passion and a part of me. It is a pleasure for me to play
as a soloist or as a chamber musician. I have cooperated with renowned musicians,
with many orchestras and chamber ensembles. I am focused on performing period
and modern music as I feel these epochs are inseperable.

About

I am a violist full of passion. I am focused on performing
modern and early music on a period instrument.
For me the music is what cannot be expressed with words.

I studied in Berlin, Warsaw and Katowice. I am a former prize winner
of the international competitions as well as the scholar of scholarships
granted by the Prime Minister, the Minister of Culture, National
Heritage and Sport. I was awarded the „Young Poland” scholarship.
I am a member of the Polish Soloists string orchestra. In the years 2016
– 2018 I was a violist of the LGT Young Soloists Orchestra. With this
ensemble I performed in Europe and Asia and recorded a CD for RCA /Sony Music.

As a soloist and a chamber musician I have performed with many
orchestras and instrumentalists in Poland and abroad.
