Biography

Krysia studied at the Yehudi Menuhin School, at Cambridge University and in Salzburg with Sandor Végh. She has also studied the sonata repertoire with Radu Lupu.

She has performed over twenty concertos with orchestra, ranging from Bach to Britten. Her many CD recordings - both chamber music and solo - have won awards such the Gramophone Award, DeutscheSchallplattenPreis and Diapaison d’Or.

She is leader of the Dante String Quartet and principal violinist with the Endymion Ensemble. She previously played for 15 years with Domus Piano Quartet.

Her teaching is influenced by Menuhin and Végh, and tempered by her own performing experience with an emphasis on the links between technique and musical understanding. She has taught at the Guildhall School since 1987.
