Katarina Bassez & ensemble
Passion, enthusiasm, virtuosity.
A concert by violinist Katarina Bassez is a feast for both the eye and the ear. With her penetrating warm sonority, her unsurpassed expressiveness and her soulful, alluring lust for playing, she touches at the very essence of each piece. No music lover can help becoming entranced and enthused on hearing so much passion, so much art, and so much creativity. The international press praises Katarina Bassez for her virtuoso playing and her warm timbre. Katarina Bassez is laureate of the Brussels Concours Charles Beriot.
She has studied with Henry Raudales, Professor Yfrah Neaman en Sir Yehudi Menuhin. She has performed solo in Europe as well as in Latin America. She played Paganini in a ‘BMW Mind Forms’ video clip set in München, and has recorded for the Bayerische Rundfunk accompanied by the Münchner Rundfunkorchester.
In 2006, with Henry Raudales, she founded the Enkabara Chamber Orchestra with which she performs as a soloist. Since 2008 she is backed by her own ensemble, a string quartet of top musicians, all of them with their own international stage experience in chamber music. It is with this ensemble that she has released a CD with works by Bruch, Bloch, Paganini and Enescu.
