Maja Horvat (Violin) and Julia Hamos (Piano)
A late reminder about our next concert on Saturday 25th March at St John's Church Whitstable at 7.30pm.
We are delighted to welcome Maja Horvat (Violin) and Julia Hamos (Piano) who will be performing the Mozart Violin Sonata K301, the Schubert Fantasie in C major, the Beethoven Violin Sonata No.10 and the Schubert Sonata No.3 in A minor. Any one of these pieces would be worth coming to the concert to hear on its own, but to have all four played on the same evening is definitely not one to be missed!
Maja gave her debut performance at Wigmore Hall in 2021 as first violinist of the Brompton Quartet, of which she is a founding member and with whom she gives frequent world premieres. They won the St Martin-in-the-Fields Chamber Music Competition and have collaborated with record producer Andrew Keener and many other currently active composers. She has performed with some of the world’s most prominent chamber musicians including Sir Andras Schiff, Tabea Zimmerman, Christian Tetzlaff, Vladimir Mendelssohn and Thomas Carroll. In 2019 Maja was awarded the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Emily Anderson Prize for an outstanding violinist.
Pianist Julia Hamos combines her American and Hungarian roots with an adventurous spirit to explore the essence of repertoire ranging from Bach to composers living today. Instinctive artistic expression, a forward-thinking attitude, a joyful physical flexibility at the instrument, and an unyielding fascination with the music she plays makes her an artist to watch. A graduate of the Royal Academy of Music in London with Christopher Elton and the Mannes College of Music in New York with Richard Goode, Julia studied with Sir András Schiff at the Barenboim-Said Akademie in Berlin and is now studying at the Kronberg Academy where her studies are generously supported by the Henle Foundation.
