Anna Agafia Egholm | DEN | *1996
Danish violinist Anna Agafia Egholm has in recent years gained international recognition as one of the most promising concert artists to emerge from Scandinavia.
A major prize winner in all Danish music competitions and numerous international violin competitions such as the Stuttgart, Tibor Varga, Carl Nielsen and Ginette Neveu competitions, she had her debut as a soloist at age 12, and has since performed with orchestras including the Danish National Symphony Orchestra, Bergen Philharmonic, Malmö Symphony Orchestra, Filarmonica de Stat Transilvania, Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne, Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra and Philharmonic Orchestra.
A student of Alexandre Zapolski, Svetlana Makarova and Tim Frederiksen, Anna Agafia Egholm obtained a Bachelor’s Diploma in violin performance from the Royal Danish Academy of Music in Copenhagen, Denmark, and later completed a Master’s degree at the Haute Ecole de Musique de Lausanne in Switzerland.
In 2020, she was admitted to the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel in Belgium, where she now serves as Artist in Residence under French violinist Augustin Dumay.
Driven by her passion and curiosity for the different aspects of what life as a performing artist has to offer, the young violinist doesn’t limit herself to solo recitals, but enjoys playing chamber music as well. She has recently collaborated with artists such as Pavel Vernikov, Frank Braley and Renaud Capuçon, and was selected to take part in the 2018 edition of the Chamber Music Connects the World festival at Kronberg Academy, where she performed alongside Steven Isserlis, Christian Tetzlaff and Gidon Kremer.
