Anna Agafia Egholm, violin
In spite of her young age, Anna Egholm already is a very active violinist, both in her home country of Denmark and abroad.
She had her debut with orchestra at age 12, and has since performed as a soloist with amongst others the Danish National Symphony Orchestra, the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra, the Malmö Symphony Orchestra, the Filarmonica de Stat Transilvania and the Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne.
Anna is a prize winner in numerous international violin competitions, such as the Carl Nielsen and the Tibor Varga competitions. She also is a recipient of the Copenhagen Summer Festival Talent Prize, the Bourse Culturelle Leenaards and one of the Sonning Talent Awards, to name a few.
Driven by her passion and curiosity for the different aspects of what life as a musician has to offer, the young violinist doesn’t limit herself to solo performances and recitals, but enjoys playing chamber music quite a lot as well.
She has recently performed with artists like Sergey Malov, Enrico Pace, Andrej Bielow, Anastasia Kobekina and Francois Salque, and was selected to take part in the 2018 edition of the Chamber Music Connects the World festival at the Kronberg Academy, where she amongst others got to perform alongside Steven Isserlis and Gidon Kremer.
Anna is currently playing on a Gagliano violin from 1763, attributed to her by the Augustinus Foundation.
Since September 2020, Anna is an Artist in Residence of the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel in the violin section, under the direction of Augustin Dumay.
